Started by Hasdeo.2013.05.31 This is Moya's logbook for Nano Japan project from 2012.6.2-2012.7.31. #contents * Daily schedule [#daily] - 09:00-10:00 Discussion (1) - 10:00-12:00 Solve the problem and write the progress on pukiwiki - 12:00-13:30 Lunch - 13:30-14:30 Discussion (2) - 14:30-16:30 Solve the problem and write the progress on pukiwiki - 16:30-17:30 e-mail report and problems * Goal of the project. [#goal] - To describe the thermal conductivity of Nanotubes and graphene. The output will be an animation of atomic vibration and its propagation in Mathematica - Keywords: Thermal conductivity, carbon nanotubes, Differential equation, Fourier Transform, Solid-state physics, Mathematica * Schedule for discussion [#discussion] |Time and Day|Mon|Tue|Wed|Thu|Fri| |09:00-10:00|Hasdeo|Tatsumi|Mizuno|Thomas|Nugraha| |13:30-14:30|Thomas|Tatsumi|Mizuno|[group meeting]|Hasdeo| * Division of tutors [#v0d44b28] |Name|Lesson to teach|Misc| |Hasdeo|Phonon in Nanotubes| How to make a presentation, and Japanese class| |Tatsumi|Nanotubes| Printer and Copy machine| |Thomas|Physical Mathematics| Library| |Mizuno|Physical Computation| Computer in Lab| |Nugraha|Phonon in Nanotubes| | - Tutorial takes place in Coffee room, since visitor room will be occupied with many people * Questions and Answers [#QA] - This section is for posting questions from Moya-san and answers from other group members. - Please list here with some simple reasons or details. - For every problem, give a tag double asterisks (**) in the code so that it will appear in the table of contents. - For the answer, give a tag triple asterisks (***) in the code below the problem in order to make a proper alignment. - List from new to old. * Report: [#d6196c2a] ** June 3: [#k93c5c39] Today, Hasdeo-san picked me up from Urban Castle Kawauchi (UCK) with Thomas-san. I learned how to get to the lab by campus bus and have been introduced to the lab, Saito-sensei and the secretaries. Hadeo-san taught me about coupled oscillators, where I learned how to solve for the motion of two masses connected by springs. The goal is to model heat in CNT's as atoms vibrating with springs. Thomas-san also lectured me and taught me some math. He taught me how to solve the 2-dimensional Laplacian using separation of variables. He also provided some insight on the applications solving the laplacian. So far, everyone seems very nice and I am very excited to start working on thermal conductivity, which was a surprise.
