Raisa Rudge graduated
Amazing accomplishments from Raisa!
Period 6 teaching
Fortunately we now have recorded lectures to serve as flipped classroom material! Thanks Peter for editing.
Advanced Soft Matter PCC31806
This year the Advanced Soft Matter practicum has a project related to the Smart Dust team. The Smart Dust team will be doing drop tower experiments in Bremen, to detect the collective behavior of a set of “smart” particles.
The SmartDust team can do microgravity experiments in Bremen!
The team of students from Otto von Guericke University, where our collaborator Ralf Stannarius works, will do granular gas experiments with balls equipped with smart sensors!
Coupled Processes PCC51303
Onsager reciprocity is a pain to explain… Even with Callen‘s help!
Molecular control over vitrimer-like mechanics – tuneable dynamic motifs based on the Hammett equation in polyimine materials
Cool polymer rheology work showing the potential of covalent adaptable networks to obtain new material properties – together with the group of Maarten Smulders.
Mushroom-shaped adhesives stick!
Congratulations Preeti and Vittorio with getting the article out in Biointerphases. Thanks also to Vincent for contributing to this study through his MSc thesis work.
Thermodynamics never gets old
Especially not with cocktail demos. The cola does get old though. The wipes make it a corona proof on-campus activity!
Natural and induced surface roughness determine frictional regimes in hydrogel pairs
The name says it all. Hydrogels come with very different surface roughnesses, which gives them different frictional behavior.
