If the load is too large, the filament makes a U bend and escapes out of the cylinder
Our research interest covers a variety of topics in soft matter physics, such as granular matter, liquid crystals, colloids, and liquid crystal elastomers. Our theoretical approaches are strongly linked with experiments and range from macroscopic phenomenology to microscopic molecular modeling. The experimental techniques include atomic and scanning tunneling microscopy, laser tweezing, and ellipsometry.
