Rheometers
  • 2 x Anton Paar MCR 302
  • Capillary Break-up Rheometer (CaBER)
Accessories
  • Polarized light imaging: allows observation of effects like flow induced crystallization processes of polymers or local shear induced effects as they may occur in liquid crystals
  • Bi-cone geometry for interfacial rheology: enables two-dimensional rheological measurements of interfacial films at the air/liquid and the liquid/liquid interface
  • Small angle laser scattering (SALS): the formation or deconstruction of aggregates in suspensions under shear can be monitored and correlated with the rheological properties
