Polydispersity in Colloidal Phase Transitions
(The University of Edinburgh: College of Science and Engineering: School of Physics, 1999-06)
I have studied the effects of polydispersity on the phase behaviour of suspensions of PMMA colloidal spheres on their own and in the presence of non-adsorbed polymer. I systematically explored the volume fraction-polydispersity ...
Swelling and shrinking kinetics of a lamellar gel phase
We investigate the swelling and shrinking of L-beta lamellar gel phases composed of surfactant and fatty alcohol after contact with aqueous poly(ethyleneglycol) solutions. The height change Delta h(t) is diffusionlike with ...
