A Bit of a Stretch - Liquid Crystal Elastomers
16 Mar 2021 • Malvern or online, United Kingdom
Organizer:
Organised by IOP West Midlands Branch, Hereford & Worcester Centre
Abstract:
This talk will introduce what these special rubbers - liquid crystal elastomers - are and how they spontaneously change shape, can lift thousands of times their own weight, and how they can even get thicker when stretched, rather than thinner. This event may also be delivered as an online webinar. If necessary due to Coronavirus or venue restrictions it will be an online webinar only.

Designed assembly of colloids at interfaces - fundamentals to applications
14 Jun 2021 - 16 Jun 2021 • University of Hull, Hull, United Kingdom
Organizer:
IOP Liquids and Complex Fluids Group
Abstract:
Colloidal particles at liquid interfaces represents a rapidly expanding area of soft matter science. The dramatic growth in interest in these systems has until now been primarily driven by the discovery of multi-phase systems such as emulsions and foams stabilised solely by particle adsorption. However, more recently, there has been a growing realisation that the unique behaviour of colloids at interfaces also provides new exciting opportunities to design the assembly of colloids into dimensionally confined structures in order to create functional nanomaterials, reconfigurable devices and biomimetic systems. The aim of this conference is to bring together the diverse research communities interested in this area, from fundamental soft matter science to applied research in areas such as novel formulations, lab on a chip reactors, nanomaterials for energy, biomaterials, encapsulation and controlled release etc., in order to cross-pollinate ideas and stimulate new research directions in these fascinating systems.
