The Physics of Exciton-Polariton Condensates

After the first demonstration of Bose-Einstein condensation in the solid state in 2006 and the establishment of exciton-polariton condensates in the wider scientific community, there has been an intense interest in this phenomenon at both the theoretical and experimental level. It is the object of this work to expand on the demonstration of polariton condensation and study in more detail different aspects of fundamental importance related to polariton condensation.

Thermodynamics in Biochemical Engineering

Thermodynamics has had an enormous impact on a very wide variety of fields, including chemistry, biology, physics, geology, and particularly on applied engineering sciences, such as, chemical engineering. Systematic application of chemical thermodynamics to process technology is one of the reasons why petrochemical plants can often be designed and petrochemical processes be developed with a bare minimum of, if any, experimental work.
