Project level: PhD

Measurement of the Brownian motion of particles moving freely or held in an optical trap can provide information on the viscoelastic properties of the surrounding medium on a microscopic scale.

This project aims to use both conventional Brownian motion and also the random rotational motion of trapped particles to develop practical rheometers capable of measurements with extremely small samples.
