Optical Microrheology of Gelling Biopolymer Solutions Based on Diffusing Wave Spectroscopy

Optical microrheology has emerged as one of the most important new techniques to study and characterize rheological properties of complex fluids. The main principle of passive microrheology is to study the thermal response of small (colloidal) particles embedded in the system under study.1–4 The par...
