Advanced multiphase techniques open new frontiers for materials and process development

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter or book articleProfessional


Development of functional materials and smart processes entails innovative links between physical, chemical and biological phenomena. The useful solution always benefits from such methods, which can bring together quantitative, interdisciplinary predictions of these topics. The thermodynamic free energy provides one such interdisciplinary concept. Particularly in macroscopic systems, where thermal, electrical or mechanical functions affect the chemical or biochemical phenomena, the Gibbs free energy provides a general method to be applied for relationships between different properties. During the last decades, the thermodynamic science has united with advanced computational techniques, thus opening new frontiers to a wide field of applications.
