Full drawing of the constant stress rheometer in its protective aluminum housing with the slit package defining the beam size. The arrow represents the incoming beam path.
Cup assembly package allowing for fast and precise alignment. Cup can be removed for cleaning and replaced without loss of alignment. The various parts of interest are annotated directly on the figure.
Rheometer installed on the NG3 SANS beam line at the NCNR. The arrow indicates the neutron path.
1D scattering intensity curve from Ti and Quartz cup and bob (error bars on the points are for a one sigma uncertainty).
2D scattering intensity from Ti (a) and Quartz (b) cup and bob showing a slightly anisotropic intensity distribution at really small angles for the Ti cup and bob.
Anisotropic calcium carbonate particles dispersed into polyethylene glycol solution. The rheology data exhibit a discontinuous shear thickening transition while the scattering curves (2D images across the top) and the particle alignment factor calculated from them (right hand axis) show no change in particle orientation through the transition. Data were collected in the relevant radial geometry.
Gel modulus as a function of strain deformation for a fibrin clot formed with a fibrinogen concentration of 1 mg/mL and corresponding scattering patterns taken in the relevant radial geometry.
