Anna Jansson Ph.D. student, Microscopy and Microanalysis, Department of Applied Physics, Chalmers.
Research interests: Environmental electron microscopy, in situ ESEM studies, transport properties of biomaterials, transient structures during wetting/drying.
As a part of the SuMo Biomaterials research programme, Anna Janssons studies are focused around the structural changes that a supramolecular biomaterial undergoes as a consequence of wetting. The structure on the micro and nano scale determines the way in which water and other soluble compounds are transported into and through the material. There are many applications where mass transport properties of supramolecular materials are important, e.g. controlled release of drugs in pharmaceuticals, release of flavour and vitamins in foods and water management in personal care products. An increased understanding of the structural changes caused by wetting may result in new material design with improved control of mass transport properties. The use of electron microscopy techniques to study the transient structures that occur during in situ dynamic wetting experiments.
