Science / Technology - Colloquium
Monday, April 29, 2013
4:00 PM-5:00 PM
Abstract: The non-perturbative nature of neutron scattering coupled with its isotopic sensitivity and penetrability has made it an ideal tool to study model biological interfaces at different environments. In this presentation I will discuss methods to create and characterize the model bio-interfaces (lipid membranes, monolayers of proteins, monolayers of cell cultures, etc.) which can mimic many of the critical attributes of living systems. I will demonstrate that neutron (and X-ray) scattering methods can help to characterize the structure, composition, and organization of these objects and their response to external stimuli like pH, temperature, and flow shear.
