  1. 1. Self-assembly of magnetic particles

    Author : Hauke Carstensen; Max Wolff; Vassilios Kapaklis; Björgvin Hjörvarsson; Benjamin Yellen; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; self-assembly; tunable interactions; phase transition; ferrofluid; Fysik; Physics;

    Abstract : Self-assembly is the spontaneous formation of larger structures from small building blocks. This process is driven and determined by the interactions between the constituents. READ MORE

  2. 2. Spectral Methods for Self-Assembly

    Author : Erik Edlund; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : classical spin models; patterns; isotropic interactions; colloids; Self-assembly;

    Abstract : Conventional manufacturing relies on robotics and chemistry to create, shape and combine components into products. Nature shows us an alternative route: by carefully designing interactions between components, they can be made to spontaneously self-assemble into complex arrangements. READ MORE

  3. 3. Nanocellulose: Energy Applications and Self-Assembly

    Author : Valentina Guccini; German Salazar-Alvarez; Olli Ikkala; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; nanocellulose; self-assembly; fuel cell; lithium ion battery; materialkemi; Materials Chemistry;

    Abstract : Technologies based on renewable materials are required to decrease the environmental cost and promote the development of a sustainable society. In this regard, nanocellulose extracted from wood finds many applications thanks to its intrinsic mechanical and chemical properties as well as the versatility in its manufacturing processes.

  4. 4. Structure formation at solid/liquid interfaces : Understanding self-assembly and environmental challenges

    Author : Shirin Nouhi; Adrian R. Rennie; Vassilios Kapaklis; Maja S. Hellsing; Ann Terry; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Solid liquid interface; neutron scattering; colloidal particles; self-assembly; perfluoroalkyl substance; Moringa seed proteins; adsorption; lamellar disorder; thermal fluctuations.;

    Abstract : The work described in the present dissertation has explored the structure of particles and molecules at solid/liquid interfaces, aiming to understand the physics of self-organizing systems and use this knowledge to address some environmental issues. Surface-sensitive neutron scattering techniques, such as reflectometry and grazing incidence small angle scattering, have been used as the primary tool to investigate structures in proximity to an interface.

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

    Author : Apurve Saini; Max Wolff; Vassilios Kapaklis; Pietro Tierno; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : 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;

    Abstract : 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. READ MORE
