Tag: colloid-2


The operations of COLLOID-2 experiment, carried out by E-USOC, have been completed successfully. This experiment is a follow up of SODI-COLLOID, that focused on three-dimensional photonic structures which possess appealing optical properties, making them candidates for future nano-technology. The presence of gravity increases the difficulty in the manufacture of colloidal photonic crystals structures. Therefore the researchers expect to figure out the phenomenon of aggregation eliminating that factor -i.e. studying particles interactions in microgravity conditions– in the modular instrument SODI (Selectable Optical Diagnostics Instrument) on board the ...
