Prof. Matthew Glaser
I have been investigating methods to study liguid crystals and membranes on a small scale, using microfluidies. I designed a system for automatically sorting micron sized droplets using di-electrophoresis. In addition to droplet sorting, I have made progress toward a system for producing smectic phase shells, with the purpose of applying an osmotic pressure to the shell. This will yield insight into the structure of the shell.
