The mechanism of flow in glassy materials is interrogated using mechanical spectroscopy applied to model nearly hard sphere colloidal glasses during flow. Superimposing a small amplitude oscillatory motion orthogonal onto steady shear flow makes it possible to directly evaluate the effect of a steady state flow on the out-of-cage (α) relaxation as well as(More)
We study the mechanism of depletion stabilization and the resultant microstructure of aqueous suspensions of nanosized silica and poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA). Rheology, small-angle light scattering (SALS), and small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) techniques enable us to analyze the microstructure at broad length scale from single particle size to the size of a(More)
A home network gateway has been developed, which supports both wire and wireless communication functions. ZigBee and PLC modules are taken as communication hardware and a conversion protocol is implemented to be able to smoothly exchange the information between the two hardware modules. The developed gateway shows good performance and can supports various(More)
The particle/polymer/solvent suspension system shows complicated microstructure. When the suspension system experiences an industrial process such as coating and drying, the system experiences microstructural change. In this study, we investigated the microstructural change during the drying of a silica/polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) suspension, with an emphasis(More)
Photoluminescence (PL) decay induced by the displacement of an ionic fluorescence component, Tb(3+), with alkali and alkaline earth metal cations was investigated using photoluminescent spherical self-assemblies as optical probes. The photoluminescent spherical self-assembly was prepared by the self-organization of a tyrosine-containing bolaamphiphile(More)
In this study, we investigated drying process of silica/PVA suspensions. After measuring the amount of polymer adsorption and the stress evolution of a film during drying process, we could find a quantitative relationship between polymer adsorption and stress development, for silica/PVA suspensions of different pH and mixing time. For all the suspensions of(More)
We report a first application of vertical small-angle X-ray scattering to investigate the drying process of a colloidal suspension by overcoming gravity related restrictions. From the observation of the drying behavior of charge-stabilized colloidal silica in situ, we find the solidification of the colloidal particles exhibits an initial ordering, followed(More)
Particle/binder/solvent systems are widely used in many applications and have long been studied. Understanding and controlling polymer adsorption in these complex material systems are important to achieve successful final performance. In this study, the effect of polymer adsorption on film formation and the relation between the microstructures of the(More)
