Cursusdoelen
After passing this course the student is able to:
  • Explain the link between microscopic descriptions of Brownian motion and macroscopic diffusion laws.
  • Describe and solve common physical models of soft matter systems such as polymers, viscoelastic media, surfactants and ionic solutions.
  • Describe the key physical characteristics of active soft matter.
  • Interpret basic experimental data for techniques such as rheology and light scattering.
Inhoud
This course introduces the main concepts underlying the physical description of ‘soft’ systems such as Brownian motion and thermal fluctuations. These are illustrated with examples from the main classes of soft matter including solutions, polymers and surfactants. Key experimental techniques such as light scattering and rheology are also discussed.​
 
Assessment plan
the result of the exam will be determined by the following assessment plan;
