AFM Cantilever Based Near Field Radiation Heat Transfer Measurement

Mentor:
Research Theme: Energy
MORE: Spring 2019

Planck’s theory of blackbody radiation imposes a limit on the maximum radiative transfer between two objects at a given temperature. The objective of the project is to measure the near field radiation between a silica microsphere and a silica substrate, compare it with the theoretical calculations. A custom-designed atomic force microscope (AFM) is being used to facilitate the measurements. The outcomes of this research aim to enhance the fundamental understandings of radiative heat transfer in the near-field which could lead to advances in microelectronics, optical data storage and thermal systems including energy conversion devices.
