PURPOSE

The PCS experiment will further the study the basic properties of colloidal particles in an overall goal to establish the fundamental physical principles involved in engineering colloidal materials. In particular, the PCS experiment will study the nucleation, growth and properties of binary colloids, the structure, stability and equilibrium properties of polymer colloids, and the mechanical properties of large-scale colloid aggregates.
