Analyzing Nanoparticle Dynamics in Complex Fluids Using Microscopy Techniques
MetadataShow full item record
Improving our understanding of nanoparticle dynamics in complex fluids allows for advancements in Point-of-Care diagnostics such as targeted drug delivery. Our group currently studies how a nanoparticle’s shape affects its dynamics in complex fluids. A previous study on spherical nanoparticles in complex fluids indicated that diffusivity collapses with increasing length scale (ratio of particle size to space between polymer chains) the diffusivities exceeded expected values made by bulk rheology. These two findings motivated this project.
