Michiel van Limbeek (University of Twente)
Impact dynamics and heat transfer characteristics of liquid nitrogen drops on a sapphire prism

Many application utilize the evaporation of liquids to control the heat transfer from a hot wall. In the context of spray cooling, drops impact the hot wall...read more

Michael Dreyer (University of Bremen)
Axial Sloshing of Liquid Hydrogen at low Bond Numbers with Superheated Walls

The dynamic behavior of liquids in moving containers with application to space technology, commonly known as sloshing...read more

Huayong Zhao (Loughborough university)
Liquid nitrogen droplet evaporation in liquids

Liquid nitrogen is extensively used in electronics, metal processing and food industries where it is regasified using ambient air vaporisers before being used. The current interest is to utilize the cold thermal energy stored in liquid nitrogen that is otherwise lost to the ambient during the regasification process...read more

Peter J. Peters (Maastricht University)
Automated cryo-EM sample preparation by pin-printing and jet vitrification

The increasing demand in cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) reveals drawbacks in current sample preparation protocols, such as sample waste and lack of reproducibility. Here, we present several technical developments that provide controlled and efficient sample preparation for cryo-EM studies...read more

Pieter-Paul Lerou (Demcon kryoz)
Low-vibration and drift miniature cryogenic stage for Cryo-EM applications

The field of cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) has seen a large growth the past decade. With the goal of workflow optimization, the cryo-EM community has an urge for new approaches in sample preparation...read more


Arvind Gangoli Rao (TU Delft)
The role of cryogenics in aviation

Aviation is the backbone of our modern society. At present, around 4.5 Billion passengers travel through the air every year and aviation is responsible for around 5 % of anthropogenic causes of Global Warming...read more

John M. Pfotenhauer (University of Wisconsin Madison)
Cryogenic heat pipes - Update and Direction

Cryogenic pulsating heat pipes (PHP) present a number of unique features as compared to their room temperature counterparts.  The pressure and temperature range defined by the two-phase regions for a number of the cryogens is easily accessible with standard experimental processes...read more

Friedhelm Herzog (Messer Group)
Heat and mass transfer in cryo condensers

Volatile substances such as solvents, gasoline vapors, or even chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) can be almost completely condensed in exhaust air streams and process gases by cooling with liquid...read more

Hendrie Derking (Cryoworld B.V.)
Liquid hydrogen storage: status & future perspectives

Hydrogen is a potential candidate to replace fossil fuels due to its very high energy density which is more than double of that of most conventional fuels. Methods for hydrogen storage are as a compressed gas at very high pressures up to about 900 bar or as a cryogenic liquid...read more

Ruud van der Woude (Demaco Holland B.V.)
Rotor Cooling System for the Asumed superconductive Motor

The consortium of the Advanced Superconducting Motor Experimental Demonstrator (ASuMED) develops, builds and tests the first fully superconductive motor for aerospace applications...read more


Bart Beulen (CryoSol-World)
VitroJet: next generation sample preparation for cryo-EM

Through many exciting developments, cryo-electron microscopy (EM) has emerged as a powerful technique to elucidate the 3D structure of macromolecular complexes...read more

Sebastian Tacke (Max Plank Institute, Dortmund)
Cryogenic workflow in electron microscopy

Electron tomography at cryogenic temperatures (cryo-ET) offers the possibility to structurally characterize biological macromolecules and macromolecular assemblies in their native environment...read more

Jean-Pierre Bernard (Air Liquide)
Applied cryogenics in lifesciences (cryotherapy)

This paper presents preliminary experimental results of cryogenic performance of a chamber dedicated to Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) application using liquid nitrogen (LIN) as a cooling source...read more

Didier Pathier (Air Liquide)
Water losses during food freezing

In food industry, the freezing process in an old and well-controlled process in terms of heat transfer while we are still working to better understand this process in terms of mass transfer (dehydration)...read more

Benoit Dugue (University of Poitiers)
