We present the direct visualizations of single, entangled DNA polymers in three flow experiments: relaxation following a rapid shear deformation, steady shear, and startup shear. To evaluate molecular theories, “test” chains were stained against a background of unstained but otherwise identical chains. To provide a direct link to bulk viscoelasticity, identical preparations were also extensively characterized via mechanical rheometry. The four concentrations studied displayed similar… CONTINUE READING
