Project summary:

The objective is to gain a fundamental understanding of diffusion of nanoparticles in solvents and in porous materials. To assess accurate information on diffusion coefficients, light scattering- and fluorescence-based photon correlation spectroscopy techniques will be used and further developed. For different particulate systems, the diffusivities will be studied in free media first to understand the influence of particle size, shape, and interactions. Then, the diffusivity of dispersions of spherical particles will be investigated in porous materials as a function of the ratio of the pore diameter to the particle diameter as well as of pore size distribution, pore arrangement, and size of the pore opening.
