The equipment includes state-of-the-art commercial rheometers (rotational, capillary as well as extension) but also home-built setups. Rheological measurements can be combined with application of UV illumination or high pressure. In addition to monitoring the mechanical response upon flow, flow-induced structure characterization via optical microscopy as well as light scattering during and after flow can be performed. Several rheometers adapted for use at the X-ray facilities in Grenoble are also available. Finally, home-build dilatometers allow for the characterization of pressure-volume-temperature behavior during and after application of shear flow.
