The Magenta consortium is delighted to announce the first open access journals have been published by members of the consortium. The team at HES-SO have published: Thermoelectric Generators Based on Ionic Liquids and The team at CEA and CNRS have published: Thermoelectricity and Thermodiffusion in Magnetic Nanofluids: Entropic Analysis
The first measurements of thermodiffusion on the ferrofluids dispersed in the new ionic liquids for thermoelectric applications have been recorded. The determined Soret coefficients ST, which quantify the gradient of concentration induced by a gradient of temperature, are positive. The diffusion coefficient of the magnetic nanoparticles scales with the viscosity of the ionic liquids.
MAGENTA’s Next Steering Committee Meeting will take place at Frentani Convention Centre in Rome on July 5th & 6th. The meeting will coincide with The 25th International Symposium on Metastable, Amorphous and Nanostructured Materials (ISMANAM 2018: http://ismanam2018.ism.cnr.it/). The latest findings from MAGENTA will be presented in the session “Nanomaterials for renewable energy and energy efficiency” [...]
The next Consortium meeting will be held in Athens, Greece on January 29-30 2018.
The fourth international conference on Nanoscience, Nanotechnology and Nanobiotechnology (4th 3NANO - former French-Brazilian meeting on Nanoscience Nanotechnology and Nanobiotechnology) was organized in Paris, December 2017 from 10 to 14th, in the prestigious Pierre & Marie Curie University (UPMC) Campus. The conference was chaired by Professor Régine Perzynski of CNRS. Several invited and contributed presentations were [...]
During the last two centuries the interrelationships involving heat and energy, their effects in thermodynamic fields, the electric effects related to temperature gradients, the crucial role of the friction, as well as the applications in technical issues, have been the scenario of relevant scientific developments in Physics, Chemistry and Technology. Recently new aspects involving that [...]
MAGENTA members gathered for the bi-annual Steering Committee Meeting in Neuchâtel Switzerland (July 20-21) to discuss the progress status of various work packages and tasks. All is advancing well and some preliminary results have been obtained on novel IL-based ferrolfuids synthesis, mockup cells, numerical simulations, etc. Selected results from the first 6 months of MAGENTA [...]
