Matters of the Heart: Cardiac Blood Flow Modeling in Clinical Care

Ämne: Mekanisk värmeteori och strömningslära 
Föreläsare: Jonas Lantz, HMV
Tid: 13:15-14:00 
Plats: Wrannesalen, CMIV, Universitetssjukhuset, Campus US

Abstract (finns bara på engelska):

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death and disability worldwide, and the prevalence has doubled in the last 30 years. Medical imaging is crucial in assessment of cardiac function and physiology, and both invasive and non-invasive methods are used routinely in the clinic. But despite the advancement in imaging technology over the last decades, there are still much that is unknown or, simply, impossible to acquire using traditional imaging techniques. As an alternative to conventional methods, by combining medical imaging data with a modeling approach, where some or all of the relevant physical characteristics is computed, it is now possible to reveal never-seen-before details of cardiac function and physiology.

Ionic thermoelectrics: Mission Impossible?

Ämne: Tillämpad fysik
Föreläsare: Dan Zhao Jonsson, ITN
Tid: 10:15-11:00 
Plats: Campus Norrköping, K3, Kåkenhus

Abstract (finns bara på engelska):

Facing the exacerbate energy crisis, thermoelectric materials are considered one of the most promising solutions to convert earth-available waste heat into electricity. However, the high raw materials cost and complicated manufacturing of the classic semi-conductive metal alloy-based thermoelectric generators are limiting large-scale application. On the other hand, electrolytes that can generate much higher thermal induced voltages are cheap, environmentally friendly and easy to process. In comparison to the extensive exploitation of electronic semi-conductive materials, electrolytes were missing in the scope of thermoelectrics for a long time. What are the challenges to apply electrolytes as ionic thermoelectric materials? How will they perform compared to electronic materials? Are we facing a target of “Mission Impossible”?
