Advanced Characterization and Modelling techniques for Colloids” 

2-3 September 2022, FORTH, Heraklion

Motivation: Properties of soft matter systems result from balance of different interactions acting on a range of length scales. Their proper characterization requires appropriate tools and techniques allied to pertinent interpretation. Techniques continuously evolve to adapt to the more challenging questions on more complex materials.  This short course aims to provide an up to date introduction to optical microscopy, scattering and rheometry as tools for characterization of soft materials and an introduction on the capabilities of numerical simulations for the microscopic understanding of the behavior, and the prediction of structure-property relations, of soft matter systems.

The course will take place at FORTH in Heraklion, in a hybrid manner. Participants may follow the course on-site or online. The course will consist of 4 half-day sessions and will include hands on demonstration of experiments (microscopy, rheometry, scattering) and simulations at the Polymer & Colloid lab (for on-site participants).

You can find the detailed Program-Syllabus of the Short Course HERE.
Positions are limited to 50 onsite and 20 online participants. Registration will close when positions are filled.

  Tutors :

Prof. Stefan Egelhaaf (Light scattering)

Prof Roberto Cerbino (Optical microscopy)

Prof. Jan Vermant (Rheology)

Prof. Roseanna Zia and Prof. Vangelis Harmandaris (Numerical Simulation)
