Indian American scientist introduces ‘Pause button’ for boiling

banner370SYRAC– USE, New York (Diya TV) — Last month, an Indian-American led team of researchers at Syracuse University’s College of Engineering and Computer Science broke the code in one of science’s most peculiar anomalies — using a focused laser beam, have created a single vapor bubble inside of a pool of liquid that can remain stable on the surface for hours. Essentially, the team has discovered the way to hit the pause button during boiling.

The discovery, led by professor Shalabh Maroo’s team, effectively puts an end to a sequence which prior has only been extendable by a period of milliseconds.

It will provide researchers the necessary time required to microscopically study vapor bubbles, and allow them to further determine ways to optimize the boiling process, specifically, maximizing the amount of heat removal with a minimal rise in temperature. For Maroo, he believes the discovery will promote the advancement in heat transfer systems. Shalabh-C.-Maroo--132x200

“With this technique, we are able to analyze the fundamentals of boiling,” Maroo said. “The new understanding is going to help researchers design surface structures to achieve desired heat transfer, accurately predict as well as enhance boiling in outer space where lack of gravity causes bubbles to stay stationary on a heated surface, and create next-generation technology for thermal management in electronics.”

The findings have been published in Nature Publishing Group’s high-impact journal, Scientific Reports.

An academic, Maroo serves as an assistant professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering, and holds post-doctorate degrees in mechanical engineering from MIT; Ph.D. & M.S. in mechanical engineering from the University of Florida; and a mechanical engineering degree from IIT Bombay.

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) charged YouPlus, a Silicon Valley startup, and its CEO Shaukat Shamim with defrauding investors by making false and misleading statements about the company’s finances. The complaint states Shamim told investors YouPlus earned millions of dollars in annual revenue and had more than 100 customers, including Fortune 500 companies. But the scheme dissolved when Shamim is said to have told certain investors YouPlus had earned less than $500,000 and obtained only four paying customers since the company’s 2013 inception.
