    Abstract : Soft matter, here, liquids and polymers, have adaptability to a surrounding geometry. They intrinsically have advantageous characteristics from a mechanical perspective, such as flowing and wetting on surrounding surfaces, giving compliant, conformal and deformable behavior.

  2. 2. 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 : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; 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

  3. 3. Anion redox processes in novel battery cathode materials investigated by soft X-ray spectroscopy

    Author : Felix Massel; Laurent Duda; Håkan Rensmo; Maria Hahlin; Kevin Smith; Uppsala universitet; []

    Abstract : This thesis presents experimental investigations of the electronic structure of emerging and novel cathode materials used in lithium- and sodium-ion batteries. The investigated materials include a range of oxide materials containing the elements nickel and manganese. READ MORE

  4. 4. Jamming and Soft-Core Rheology

    Author : Daniel Vågberg; Peter Olsson; Teitel Stephen; Vitelli Vincenzo; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; jamming; rheology; soft matter; granular material; SLLOD; critical point; critical scaling;

    Abstract : Many different physical systems, such as granular materials, colloids, foams and emulsions exhibit a jamming transition where the system changes from a liquid-like flowing state to a solid jammed state as the packing fraction increases. These systems are often modeled using soft-core particles with repulsive contact forces. READ MORE

  5. 5. Glass Transition Dynamics in Soft Condensed Matter

    Author : Johan Mattsson; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; polymer films; beta relaxation; hydrogen bond; glass transition; polymer dynamics; cooperativity; confinement; IXS; Brillouin light scattering; excess wing;

    Abstract : Materials of very different character, ranging from polymers to metals can be made into glasses. The structural and dynamical properties of glass-forming materials are fundamentally different from those found in crystals. Hence, glassy materials exhibit unique characteristics, which make them suitable for a wide range of applications. READ MORE
