Rheology, thermal analysis & Light Scattering Laboratory
The laboratory is equipped to measure rheological properties over the full range of viscosities (i.e. from water to polymer melts), both in shear and elongation, including rheo-optical measurements. In addition, the lab is equipped with a laser light scattering instrument for static and dynamic light scattering (SLS & DLS), where the dynamics, structure and mechanics of materials can be studied. Besides all kind of viscoelastic fluids, also many different soft-tissues are characterized.
