The Danish lighthouse SOLID has the vision to carry out cutting-edge research in neutron and synchrotron-based 3D imaging of hard materials. The combination of the separately superior sources, ESS and MAX IV, allows mapping the internal structure of a material, its formation and its change at all relevant length and time scales. At NanoSYD we will study cooling systems for power electronic devices. In particular we aim at understanding fundamental issues of flow of two-phase liquids and nanofluids in microporous materials and microfluidics devices. Neutron imaging is ideal for visualising such a flow due to its high penetration and good contrast with liquids. Complementary measurements with high-resolution Helium ion microscopy at SDU will clarify the role of structure between pores and surfaces in relation to nucleation and phase separation.
