Differential dynamic microscopy (DDM) is a form of video image analysis that combines the sensitivity of scattering and the direct visualization benefits of microscopy. DDM is broadly useful in determining dynamical properties including the intermediate scattering function for many spatiotemporally correlated systems. Despite its straightforward analysis, DDM has not been fully adopted as a routine characterization tool, largely due to computational cost and lack of algorithmic robustness. We… 

Transport Properties of Critical Sulfur Hexafluoride From Multiscale Analysis of Density Fluctuations

Density fluctuations near critical points have a wide range of sizes limited only by the boundaries of the enclosing container. How would a fluctuating image near the critical point look if we could



Protein condensates as aging Maxwell fluids

It is concluded that protein condensates can be soft glassy materials that the authors call Maxwell glasses with age-dependent material properties, which are possible advantages of glassy behavior for modulation of cellular biochemistry.

Myosin-driven actin-microtubule networks exhibit self-organized contractile dynamics

This work combines dynamic differential microscopy, particle image velocimetry, and particle tracking to show that both actin and microtubules undergo ballistic contraction with unexpectedly indistinguishable characteristics, suggesting that micro Tubules enable self-organized myosin-driven contraction by providing flexural rigidity and enhanced connectivity to actin networks.

Multiple dynamic regimes in a coarsening foam.

The analysis of the bubble displacement distribution in real space reveals the existence of a displacement cut-off of the order of thebubble diameter, and introduces such cut- off length in an existing model, describing stress-driven dynamics in disordered systems, fully accounts for the observed behaviour in direct and reciprocal space.

Multiple particle tracking microrheological characterization: Fundamentals, emerging techniques and applications

This Tutorial should provide researchers with the fundamental basis and skills needed to use multiple particle tracking microrheological techniques and develop new MPT techniques to characterize materials for their unique applications.

Magma reservoir failure and the onset of caldera collapse at Kīlauea Volcano in 2018

A model of time-evolving reservoir depressurization is developed to jointly explain lava lake withdrawal rate and the rate and spatial pattern of ground subsidence obtained from radar satellites and a dense local monitoring network.

Probe microrheology without particle tracking by differential dynamic microscopy

We present a new method for performing passive probe microrheology. Using a simple theoretical framework, we show how probes’ mean-squared displacements can be extracted by analyzing intensity

Viscoelastic surfactant solutions: model systems for rheological research

The molecular constitution of viscoelastic gels is customarily described in terms of networks, which may have a transient or permanent character. Such supermolecular structures are often observed in

Estimating the viscoelastic moduli of complex fluids using the generalized Stokes–Einstein equation

Abstract We obtain the linear viscoelastic shear moduli of complex fluids from the time-dependent mean square displacement, , of thermally-driven colloidal spheres suspended in the fluid using a

Bridging the spatiotemporal scales of macromolecular transport in crowded biomimetic systems.

It is shown that actin crowding leads to DNA compaction and suppression of fluctuations, combined with subdiffusion and heterogeneous transport, whereas microtubules have much more subdued impact across all scales, and that these intriguing results arise from a complex interplay between network rigidity, mesh size, filament concentration, and DNA size.
