Microscopy is the workhorse of the physical and life sciences, producing crisp images of everything from atoms to cells well beyond the capabilities of the human eye. However, the analysis of these images is frequently little better than automated manual marking. Here, we revolutionize the analysis of microscopy images, extracting all the information theoretically contained in a complex microscope image.
Fascinating rheological properties like shear thickening/thinning and anisotropic viscosity arise from underlying structure in complex fluids. We develop and use techniques to simultaneously analyze emergent, large-scale properties and image particle-level positions and stresses in such suspensions.
Visualization, coarsening, and flow dynamics of focal conic domains in simulated smectic-A liquid crystals
Our shear thickening paper that settles a decades-long debate in suspension rheology has been selected as PRL Editor's Suggestion.
We introduced an experiment to solve the mystry of how Oobleck works.
