What We Do

The Nanoscale Imaging and Transport (NIT) Lab develops thermal transport solutions for micro and nanoscale devices. The lab is located in the Engineering & Science Building (ESB) and is affiliated with the Center for Clean Energy Engineering (C2E2). NIT is part of the Department of Mechanical Engineering and is under the direction of Dr. Georges Pavlidis.


  • Conferences ECS and Itherm 2023 – Boston, MA and Orlando, FL
    NITL had a busy week after Memorial day! Dr. Pavlidis gave an invited talk at the 243rd Electrochemical Society (ECS) Meeting in Boston, MA! He presented on “Sub-Bandgap Thermoreflectance Imaging of Ultra-Wide Bandgap Semiconductors”. Following ECS, Dr. Pavlidis travelled with Bivek to Orlando, FL, for the IEEE Conference on Thermal and Thermomechanical Phenomena in Electronic […]
