For measurement of both bulk and interfaicial rheology of complex fluids and structured interfaces, the lab is equipped with a TA Insturments AR-G2 rheometer.

For bulk rheology, the rheometer is outfitted with cone and plate, parrallel plate, and couette cell geometries, and utilizes a peltier plate for temperature control.  It is capable of working in both controlled stress and strain modes.

In addition, the rheometer has a interfacial shear attachement, allowing the measurement of viscoelastic shear modulli of non-Newtonian interfaces.
