Direct measurement of the ballistic motion of a freely floating colloid in Newtonian and viscoelastic fluids

Abstract

A thermal colloid suspended in a liquid will transition from a short-time ballistic motion to a long-time diffusive motion. However, the transition between ballistic and diffusive motion is highly dependent on the properties and structure of the particular liquid. We directly observe a free floating tracer particle’s ballistic motion and its transition to… (More)
