Physicists and chemists discuss such topics as a simple argument for like-charge colloidal attraction, elastic properties of colloidal solids with disorder, a brief introduction to stochastic thermodynamics, statistical optics concepts in light scattering and microscopy of colloidal systems, the physics of natural and synthetic active colloids, colloidal shape effects in evaporating drops, and the two-step mechanism and the solution-to-crystal spinodal in the nucleation of crystals from solution.
The current focus of the Urban Research Group is on stimuli-responsive polymeric materials and molecular level processes that govern self-repairing mechanisms in coatings as well as the role of nano-components in colloidal systems.
Even though colloidal systems are important in many industries and form the basis of numerous products, many new chemists and chemical engineers have little or no direct experience with them.
To better understand these colloidal systems, scientists are using the microgravity environment of the International Space Station (ISS), where the gravitational pull is one millionth of that on Earth.
