Rheology Laboratory

Image 1 of 1

The Rheology Laboratory at IMS (Rheology and Processing of Soft Matter) comprises state-of-the art rheological characterisation infrastructure with a special focus on advanced methods such as nonlinear rheology and hyphenated rheological techniques.

In terms of standard measurements, the measurement capabilities are broad, extending from high precision low viscosity fluids to polymer melts and further to solid-like materials, temperatures from -150 ℃ up to 450 ℃ and includes the influence of relative humidity. As hyphenated techniques we are currently focused on combining rheology with various types of optical analyses, combining rheology with small-angle X-ray scattering (MAX IV) and rheo-dielectric spectroscopy. Do you have a very challenging material / measurement to perform? Come and talk to us.
