  • Revealing structure and dynamics of glassy polymers during transition

    Glasses are not, perhaps surprisingly, technically solid in a crystalized form, but are substances frozen in a liquidlike structure. Many fundamental questions remain as to exactly how glasses form, transitioning from flowing liquid to solid glass. A central factor materials scientists study when ex more

  • Microplastics: Rhine one of the most polluted rivers worldwide

    Tiny plastic particles smaller than five millimeters, so-called microplastics, are found in almost all waterbodies these days. They occur as intermediate products in plastic production or as pellets for cleansing and care products or result from fragmentation of plastic debris. They are released int more

  • Synthetic Batteries for the Energy Revolution

    Sun and wind are important sources of renewable energy, but they suffer from natural fluctuations: In stormy weather or bright sunshine electricity produced exceeds demand, whereas clouds or a lull in the wind inevitably cause a power shortage. For continuity in electricity supply and stable power g more

Rheology Focus Forum - Time-Temperature Superposition in Rheology - A Review

Ever since its discovery and critical study by some of the pioneers of polymer rheology and viscoelasticity (Leaderman, Tobolsky, Ferry, Plazek et al), time-temperature superposition (tTS) has proved to be a very useful tool to rheologists, enabling us to extend the time/frequency range of experimen
