Dynamic Forces in Soft Matter
Studies range from directly measuring the interactions between soft objects such as drops and bubbles to the compression and nano-mechanical properties of capsules and soft particles.
Brownian Dynamics of Particles and Polymers
Every colloidal dispersion undergoes Brownian motion. Understanding this process is vital to areas as diverse as the stability of paint or shampoo to the diffusion of anisotropic particles in confined geometries.
Formulation Problems with Emulsions and Foams
The fundamental outcomes from dynamic forces in soft matter can be applied to offer new insights in formulation problems with emulsions and foams.
Atomic Force Microscopy
Initially developed to measure surface topographic information on the nanoscale in air or liquid environments, the uses of AFM have been extended to probe a number of interfacial material properties.
