Research Interests

Prof. Dr. Jan Karel George Dhont

  • Dynamics of macromolecules in equilibrium, like diffusion of spherical and rod-like particles, and spheres in rod-networks.
  • Phase separation kinetics, like spinodal decomposition and crystallization in shear flow.
  • Response of several types of macromolecular systems to external fields: shear flow (rheology and shear-banding), electric fields (field-induced phases in suspensions of rods), thermodiffusion (spherical and rod-like charged colloids), and confinement (diffusion near a solid wall).
