Sammanfattning : Self-assembly is the spontaneous formation of larger structures from small building blocks. This process is driven and determined by the interactions between the constituents. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Conventional manufacturing relies on robotics and chemistry to create, shape and combine components into products. Nature shows us an alternative route: by carefully designing interactions between components, they can be made to spontaneously self-assemble into complex arrangements. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Technologies based on renewable materials are required to decrease the environmental cost and promote the development of a sustainable society. In this regard, nanocellulose extracted from wood finds many applications thanks to its intrinsic mechanical and chemical properties as well as the versatility in its manufacturing processes. LÄS MER
4. Structure formation at solid/liquid interfaces : Understanding self-assembly and environmental challenges
Sammanfattning : The work described in the present dissertation has explored the structure of particles and molecules at solid/liquid interfaces, aiming to understand the physics of self-organizing systems and use this knowledge to address some environmental issues. Surface-sensitive neutron scattering techniques, such as reﬂectometry and grazing incidence small angle scattering, have been used as the primary tool to investigate structures in proximity to an interface.

5. Following nanoparticle self-assembly in real-time : Small-angle X-ray scattering and quartz crystal microbalance study of self-assembling iron oxide nanocubes
Sammanfattning : Self-assembly of nanoparticles is a widely used technique to produce nanostructured materials with crystallographic coherence on the atomic scale, i.e. mesocrystals, which can display useful collective properties. This thesis focusses on the underlying mechanism and dynamics of mesocrystal formation by using real-time techniques. LÄS MER
