The Biocolloid and Fluid Physics group is an internationally recognized group belonging to the Department of Applied Physics of the University of Granada (Spain).
The Biocolloid and Fluid Physics group is an internationally recognized group composed by physicists, chemists, biologists, biochemists and external collaborators. Our group is actively involved in multidisciplinary basic and applied research in Colloid and Interface Science. In particular, we study directed assembly of nanoparticles on surfaces by convective/capillary deposition, biomimetic hydroxyapatite coatings, food emulsions, drug/gene delivery, magnetorheology, synthesis of nanoparticles and colloidal structures. These areas are mainly investigated experimentally (Contact angle and surface tension measurements, Photon Correlation Spectroscopy, Tribometry, Rheometry, Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis, Electrophoresis, Langmuir balance), but we also have expertise in theory (Gradient theory) and simulation (Brownian dynamics, Montecarlo techniques, Stochastic Rotation Dynamics). One of the most outstanding features of our group is the close and long-standing collaboration with industry.
