|Summer 2013 : Our work with Hartmut Loewen's group
in Duesseldorf with a model 2D system and optical
tweezers reveals an new form of confinement, adaptive
confinement, which mimics biological systems and enables
the first direct measurement of osmotic pressure in
particle-resolved studies. Published in Nature Communications. PDF

Winter 2010-2011. Prediction of a
new form of gel. Until now gels have always been
formed of multicomponent materials, namely a liquid solvent
and one or more macromolecular or colloidal species. Our
work shows that a new class of materials could be produced
from fullerenes, which should be long-lived at room temperature
and require no solvent. This work was covered by a variety
of media sources, including New
News, Physorg and the Australian Broadcasting Corporation. Read the article
