EP V Prof. Dr. Ingo Rehberg Uni Bt


...is experimal physics focussing on the dynamics of pattern formation.
The investigated systems can be devided into (complex) fluids and (wet) granular matter.

  1. Individual glass particles
    suspended in water;
  2. Their collective assembly
    to mushroom-like structures;
  3. The time sequence
    of a suspension in a rotating drum
    demonstrates demixing;
  4. Artificial creeping dunes
    created by shear flow;
  5. A drop
    of a magnetic liquid (ferrofluid)
    before pinch-off;
  6. Spatio-temporal image
    of convection rolls in a liquid crystal.
This postcard
provides a potpourri
of some of the materials used.
