The description of hydrodynamic interactions between a particle and the surrounding liquid, down to the nanometer scale, is of primary importance since confined liquids are ubiquitous in many natural and technological situations. In this paper, we combine three non-conventional atomic force microscopes to study hydrodynamics around micro- and nano-cylinders. These complementary methods allow the independent measurement of the added mass and friction terms over a large range of probe sizes…

Microrheology of Complex Fluids

Microrheology methods typically use embedded micron-sized probes to locally deform the sample, thus allowing one to use this type of rheology on very small volumes, of the order of a microliter, and boasts a significantly higher range of frequencies available without time-temperature superposition.

Fluid Mechanics of Microrheology

In microrheology, the local and bulk mechanical properties of a complex fluid are extracted from the motion of probe particles embedded within it. In passive microrheology, particles are forced by
