Echo dynamic light scattering and rheometer

Echo dynamic light scattering and rheometer

The Polymer & Colloid Science Group activities are directed towards the fundamental understanding of the structure-properties relationship in soft matter. This is accomplished through systematic approaches on carefully selected projects utilizing a range of powerful, high spatial and time resolution experimental techniques. We focus our attention towards model polymeric and colloidal systems with special consideration to dynamical properties. The main mastered experimental techniques are scattering (Light, X-ray, Neutrons) and rheology. As we are not manufacturing our model samples, we rely on close collaboration with a number of pioneering chemists. Our effort is also directed towards the development of specific experimental tools like Evanescent wave scattering and Echo dynamic light scattering.

The main general interest includes:
