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.
