Welcome

The Solomon research group works on micro-scale characterization of complex interactions in materials such as polymers, colloids and microbial biofilms. The projects in our group aim to understand how such interactions mediate a material’s self-assembly, microstructural and rheological properties. We use coordinated methods of 3D confocal microscopy, rheometry, light scattering and image processing to correlate macroscopic properties of soft matter to their micro-scale features.  

Solomon Group (2022)
(Front L-R) Prof. Mike Solomon, Clémence Abriat, Keara Saud and Syahidah Mohd Khari.
(Back L-R) Max LaCascia, Tianyu (Terry) Liu and Chih-Mei Young.
