Conductive and Convective Types Behaviors at Nano-Time Scales
Abstract:A new model of the transport phenomena in nanostructures, considering that the motion of the particles takes place on continuous but non-differentiable curves is build. It results that the synchronization of the movements at different scales (fractal scale, differential scale etc.) gives conductive type properties to the "matter," while the absence of synchronization induces properties of convective type. These behaviors (conductive or convective) at nano-time scales, are illustrated through numerical simulations of a plasma generated by laser ablation.
