    Sammanfattning : Soft matter, here, liquids and polymers, have adaptability to a surrounding geometry. They intrinsically have advantageous characteristics from a mechanical perspective, such as flowing and wetting on surrounding surfaces, giving compliant, conformal and deformable behavior. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Jamming and Soft-Core Rheology

    Författare :Daniel Vågberg; Peter Olsson; Teitel Stephen; Vitelli Vincenzo; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; jamming; rheology; soft matter; granular material; SLLOD; critical point; critical scaling;

    Sammanfattning : Many different physical systems, such as granular materials, colloids, foams and emulsions exhibit a jamming transition where the system changes from a liquid-like flowing state to a solid jammed state as the packing fraction increases. These systems are often modeled using soft-core particles with repulsive contact forces. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Magnetically governed self-assembly of soft matter : A look into interfacial layering, crystallization and percolation

    Författare :Apurve Saini; Max Wolff; Vassilios Kapaklis; Pietro Tierno; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Self-assembly; Soft matter; Colloids; Magnetic nanoparticles; Ferrofluid; Solid-liquid interface; Neutron reflectometry; Electrical sensing; Microcontact; Materiefysik; Physics of Matter;

    Sammanfattning : Self-organisation is the key route for assembling colloidal particles into well-defined structures. Decisive for this are the interactions between the constituents, which are amongst others steric, electrostatic or magnetic. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Advances in Soft Matter Nanofabrication

    Författare :Mehrnaz Shaali; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; photolithography; negative e-beam resist; monolayer; confocal microscopy; Teflon AF; KPFM; DNA origami; cells; lipid nanotube; AFM; double bilayer; Phospholipid; electron beam lithography;

    Sammanfattning : The focus of this thesis is placed on the fabrication of engineered nanodevices for the manipulation of soft matter thin films. By combining top-down micro- and nanofabrication approaches with bottom-up self-assembly strategies, new research platforms were developed, tested and characterized. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Small-Scale Sample Handling for Studies of Liquid Crystals and Lipid-Based Soft Matter

    Författare :Gabriel Ohlsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; fluorescence microscopy; nanocell; Microfluidics; aquaporins; liquid crystals; membrane transport; phase transitions; QCM-D; soft matter; lipid bilayer;

    Sammanfattning : In the field of sensing in general and biosensing in particular, there is a growing need for integratingminiaturised senor elements in microfluidic systems. The advantages are several, some of which being that the consumption of, often very expensive, sample material can be reduced; sampleexchange can be optimized; sensor performance in terms of detection limits can be improved and phenomena occurring on a very small, and even single-molecule, scale can be studied.
