  1. NETWORK AREA 1 – Planning for 2006-2007 Colloidal composites, gels and glasses Workpackages : W.P.1.1 Synthesis, Phase Behaviour, Structure and Optical Properties W.P.1.2. Dynamics and Rheology in Bulk W.P.1.3. Rheology, Structure and Dynamics near Walls and at Interfaces. softComp | soft matter composites

  2. W.P.1.1 Synthesis, Phase Behaviour, Structure and Optical Properties General objective 1.1: Mixtures of colloids of various sizes and shapes, dispersed in complex fluids which for example may include polymers of different architectures. Tailor optical properties Experiments on well-defined model systems will be performed Compare to theoretical predictions and numerical simulations The goal is to cover the entire range of volume fractions, for example spanning from colloidal gels to glasses. The synthesis platform is of major importance for the success of this workpackage, as far as colloid and polymer synthesis is concerned. softComp | soft matter composites

  3. W.P.1.2. Dynamics and Rheology in Bulk General objective 1.2: Diffusion of spherical and non-spherical particles in their complex surroundings Heterogeneity in space and time. Adapted methods and approaches will be used to study dense gels and glasses. Moreover, simulation packages and theoretical descriptions will be developed to rationalize the dynamics. Rheology – thixotropy - non-Newtonian media Flow-instabilities, such as shear banded flows, will also be addressed as they seem to be an inherent feature of complex fluids. The experimental and theoretical platforms are of major importance for the success of this workpackage. softComp | soft matter composites

  4. W.P. 1.3 Rheology, Structure and Dynamics near Walls and at Interfaces. General objective 1.3: Confining particles near walls may give rise to pre-transitional phenomena (like wetting and pre-freezing) or phenomena of adhesion. This is of interest for any industrial application where thin films are processed or when particles flow in thin capillaries (e.g in porous rocks). Particles have also a tendency to become trapped at liquid-air and liquid-liquid interfaces in multiphase systems. Planar interfaces will be used to study the dynamics and interfacial rheology. Modification by particles of interfaces in bulk systems will be studied by a combination of microscopic and scattering techniques. The experimental and theoretical platforms are of major importance for the success of this workpackage. softComp | soft matter composites
