I am interested in the dynamics of liquids near solid surfaces. I use molecular dynamics to probe the friction of Lennard-Jones liquids on a model wall as a function of temperature. I also study the slip and friction of polymer solutions on ideal substrate using photobleaching techniques and neutron reflectivity. I am focusing on the dynamics of polymer chains near the wall as the chains are cooled down near their glass transition temperature.

Slip of polymer solutions: effect of temperature

Using a home-made velocimetry technique, we quantify the friction between polymer solutions and solid surfaces as a function of temperature. Coupling our measurements with bulk rheology, we can extract a lot of information about local friction between polymer chains and the wall.

Friction of a Kob-Andersen fluid

We use Molecular Dynamics simulations to study the role of temperature on the friction at the liquid/solid interface with a model system. In particular, we show that at high temperatures, both the viscosity and friction are well-described by activated processes while in the supercooled regime, there is a strong deviation from the usual Arrhenian law, leading to giant slip lengths.

Depletion and adsorption in polymer solutions probed by neutron reflectivity

We use neutron reflectivity to probe the interface between polymer solutions and solid substrates. We observe and quantify a depletion of polymer near the solid substrate. Interestingly, we show that depletion does not prevent adsorption of polymer chains on the wall.
