Simulation of micro reactors and how these reactors can be used for particle synthesis

Klaus Stefan Drese

Fraunhofer ICT-IMM, Mainz, Germany.

What micro reactors are is defined in its most general approach only by the typical size of their structures, i.e. typical length scales between 1\B5m to 1mm. The nature of these kind of reactors is best understood by simulation. In the talk the example of micro reactor simulations are given and basis of common properties like intensive heat transfer, fast mixing, small inner volumes, but also laminar flow are worked out. The combination of all these properties leads to the fact that chemical processes can be run with very high control and in a very safe manner. All this makes micro reactors to an ideal tool for the production of nano particles. Examples how this can be done and how particle properties are controlled via the process in micro reactors are given.

Brief Bio:

Dr. Klaus Stefan Drese studied physics at the Julius Maximilian University in Würzburg and at the State University of New York at Stony Brook. He received his PhD in theoretical physics in the area of time-dependent quantum mechanics at the Phillips University in Marburg. He joined the simulation group of IMM in 1998, became head of the Fluidics and Simulation Department in early 2004 and now, since March 2007, is Scientific Director. The responsibilities of Dr. Drese cover the entire development work of micro- and bio-fluidic systems including simulation, silicon and thin film technology, laser material processing and optical sensors, mechanical micro machining as well as measuring technologies.
