PoreLab is a Norwegian Center of Excellence created in 2017 and situated at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) in Trondheim, and the University of Oslo (UiO). It focuses on the physics of porous media using experimental, theoretical and computational methods. It is led by six principal scientists from physics, chemistry and reservoir engineering.

Read how inconsistencies are removed by properly incorporating the curvature dependence of the surface tension of the mixture into classical nucleation theory for multicomponent systems

This is the last publication from Ailo Aasen , David Reguera and Øivind Wilhelmsen available under the PHYSICAL REVIEW LETTERS 124, Issue 4. The study of nucleation in fluid mixtures exposes challenges beyond those of pure systems. A striking example is homogeneous condensation in highly surface-active water alcohol mixtures, where classical nucleation theory yields an

Read about the heat effects in Lithium ion batteries in the last publication from Gunnarshaug et al. here

Lithium ion batteries are used to store and produce electric energy. During the charging- and discharging processes, net heat is released or adsorbed in the battery. Temperature is one of the most important factors for battery ageing. In this study we are seeking a fundamental understanding of one of the heat effects, the reversible heat
