Energy from the micro world

Interpreting and modelling thermodynamic processes at nano scale is one of the strategic goals of contemporary science. Heat transfer, thermoelectric effects at nano scale together with a new paradigm to study and use the apparently useless noise, are some of the topics of the research on microenergetics.

Physicists, engineers, biologists and ICT scientists are all looking for a theoretical and technological holy grail that will trigger the future industrial revolution and make us understanding how the thermodynamic works at nano scale.
