    • Influence of humidity on tribo-electric charging and segregation in shaken granular media. 

      Schella, André; Herminghaus, Stephan; Schröter, Matthias (Soft matter, 2017-01)
      We study the effect of humidity on the charge accumulation of polymer granulates shaken vertically in a stainless steel container. This setup allows us to control the humidity level from 5% to 100%RH while performing automated ...
    • Measuring the configurational temperature of a binary disc packing. 

      Zhao, Song-Chuan; Schröter, Matthias (Soft matter, 2014-06)
      Jammed packings of granular materials differ from systems normally described by statistical mechanics in that they are athermal. In recent years a statistical mechanics of static granular media has emerged where the thermodynamic ...
    • Self-Assembling DNA templates for programmed artificial biomineralization 

      Samano, Enrique C; Pilo-Pais, Mauricio; Goldberg, Sarah; Vogen, Briana N; Finkelstein, Gleb; LaBean, Thomas H (Soft Matter, 2011-05-16)
      Complex materials with micron-scale dimensions and nanometre-scale feature resolution created via engineered DNA self-assembly represent an important new class of soft matter. These assemblies are increasingly being exploited ...
