Project level: PhD

The ability to exert and measure forces and torques on microscopic objects offers the possibility to measure the rheological properties of tiny samples of fluids. One application with the potential to bring great social benefit is the measurement of the characteristics of natural eye fluids and optimisation of substitutes used to combat the problem of "dry eye", which is growing in an ageing population.
