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.
Direct evidence of stress-induced chain proximity in a macromolecular complex
PEG/PAA mixtures display shear-induced gelation which can be traced back to chain proximity with NOESY techniques and most likely hydrogen bonding.
Preparing corona-proof kitchen experiments on soft matter
Experiments developed for 5VWO students from the local high school Het Streek in Ede.
Caliper Training School 1 #online
Thanks Stefan Radl for organizing the training school and Dimitri Fedosov for contributing.
High Field MicroMRI Velocimetric Measurement of Quantitative Local Flow Curves
Combining rheology and NMR/MRI methods is very useful! Check out the results of our collaboration with the Biophysics dept here.
