Viscosity of fluids governs crucial physical and chemical phenomena going from diffusion and transport of nutrients or chemicals, to the generation of friction and to the physics of damping. Confined fluids frequently experience local conditions which modify their rheological properties. Although viscosity data can be easily acquired using conventional rheometers, results are not always applicable to fluids under confinement situations.
The objective of this work is to study confinement phenomena in complex systems at multiscales. For that, the fluorescence of molecular rotors and more particularly the fluorescence lifetime of molecular rotors in confined systems will be measured. FLIM (Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging Microscope) equipment will be implemented in order to study confinement effects in different systems such as gels, suspensions and/or contact between particles in a dispersion.
Physical-chemistry and/or soft matter experimentalist, some experience in fluorescence would be an advantage as well as the usage of a programming language such as Matlab or Python would be desirable. Ability to work in a team on multidisciplinary projects is expected.
Good writing and speaking skills in English are expected.
