AbstractIn this course the engineering with soft materials is discussed. First, scaling principles to design structural and functional properties are introduced a. Second, the characterisation techniques to interrogate the structure property relations are introduced, which include rheology, advanced optical microscopies, static and dynamic scattering and techniques for liquid interfaces.
ObjectiveThe learning goals of the course are to introduce the students to soft matter and its technological applications, to see how the structure property relations depend on fundamental formulation properties and processing steps. Students should also be able to select a measurement technique to evaluate the properties.
Lecture notesslides with text notes accompanying each slide are presented.
