Welcome on the QUANTIHEAT European research project website

QUANTItative scanning probe microscopy techniques for HEAT transfer management in nanomaterials and nanodevices


The QUANTIHEAT project tackles issues related to thermal metrology at the nanoscale and aims at delivering validated standards, methods and modeling tools for nanothermal designs and measurements. This 4-year project brings together 20 partners from 7 different European countries and 2 associated countries. It has received funding from the European Union Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration (FP7/2007-2013) under grant agreement n°604668.

Quantiheat session at Eurotherm108 conference (Nanoscale and Microscale Heat Transfer V) from 26th to 30th September 2016

The Eurotherm seminar 108 (http://eurotherm108.scientific-event.com/) was organized by the Laboratoire d’Energétique et de Mécanique Théorique et Appliquée (LEMTA, Nancy, France)  under the auspices of the Société Française de Thermique and took place in Santorini island in Greece from 26th to 30th September 2016.

This seminar presented the state of the art and the modern trends in nanoscale and microscale heat transfer. It focused on:

  • Conductive heat transfer at short scales of length and time,
  • Thermal radiation at subwavelength scale,
  • Heat and mass transfer in nanofluids.

A specific session was dedicated to the QUANTIHEAT project on Monday 26th September focusing in particular on the results obtained in terms of new equipment, measurement modeling and applications related to Scanning Thermal Microscopy.

This session was a success according to Eurotherm participants. Other contributions of project partners presenting experimental and simulation results on heat conduction in nanomaterials and near field thermal radiation between two objects also contributed to place QUANTIHEAT as a key project in the issues addressed by the Eurotherm community.

Warmest acknowledgements to the organizing committee to have given the opportunity to QUANTIHEAT Consortium to present their main progresses in the field of nano and micro-scale heat transfer.
