In this lab course you will investigate the macroscopic visco-elastic properties of a polymer network using a rheometer and employ the obtained information to predict, if a particle of a given size is able to freely diffuse within the polymer network. Using time-lapse microscopy and particle tracking, we will perform a microscopic analysis of the particle motion within the polymer gel to verify if our predictions hold true.
