Description: The course will provide knowledge into the fundamentals of colloidal interactions (e.g., stabilisation, adsorption, self-assembly) and the techniques currently applied for their assessment. Apart from the theoretical background, the course will also provide applicable knowledge by covering current and emerging applications involving these phenomena. Interfacial tension, wetting and spreading, contact angle hysteresis, interaction between colloid particles, stability of interfaces, flow and transport near interfaces will be covered. NOTE: Offered in alternative year with MSNE 594/CHBE 594. Cross-list: MSNE 560.
