Ultrasoft, highly deformable microgels

In by Jules

Microgels are colloidally stable, hydrogel microparticles that have previously been used in a range of (soft) material applications due to their tunable mechanical and chemical properties. Most commonly, thermo and …

Reconfigurable Shapes and Assemblies of Anisotropic Particles

In by Jules

This dissertation describes dynamically reconfigurable particles that can undergo permanent or reversible changes in sizes and shapes depending on the surrounding environment. Electrohydrodynamic co-jetting provides the key for the successful …
