• Particle-size effects in the formation of bicontinuous Pickering emulsions 

    Reeves, M.; Brown, A. T.; Schofield, A. B.; Cates, M. E.; Thijssen, J. H. J.
    We demonstrate that the formation of bicontinuous emulsions stabilized by interfacial particles (bijels) is more robust when nanoparticles rather than microparticles are used. Emulsification via spinodal demixing in the ...
  • Predicting the three-dimensional folding of cis-regulatory regions in mammalian genomes using bioinformatic data and polymer models 

    Brackley, Chris A; Brown, Jill M; Waithe, Dominic; Babbs, Christian; Davies, James; Hughes, Jim R; Buckle, Veronica J; Marenduzzo, Davide
    The three-dimensional organisation of chromosomes can be probed using methods such as Capture-C. However it is unclear how such population level data relates to the organisation within a single cell, and the mechanisms ...
  • Pressure-induced localisation of the hydrogen-bond network in KOH-VI 

    Hermann, A; EPSRC - Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council; STFC - Science and Technology Facilities Council
    Using a combination of ab initio crystal structure prediction and neutron diffraction techniques, we have solved the full structure of KOH-VI at 7 GPa. Rather than being orthorhombic and proton-ordered as had previously ...
  • Quantitative morphological characterization of bicontinuous Pickering emulsions via interfacial curvatures 

    Reeves, Matthew; Stratford, Kevin; Thijssen, Job
    Bicontinuous Pickering emulsions (bijels) are a physically interesting class of soft materials with many potential applications including catalysis, microfluidics and tissue engineering. They are created by arresting the ...
  • Self-organization and transition to turbulence in isotropic fluid motion driven by negative damping at low wavenumbers 

    McComb, W. David; Linkmann, Moritz F.; Berera, Arjun; Yoffe, Samuel R.; Jankauskas, Bernardas
    We observe a symmetry-breaking transition from a turbulent to a self-organized state in direct numerical simulation of the Navier-Stokes equation at very low Reynolds number. In this self-organised state the kinetic energy ...
  • Shear thickening regimes of dense non-Brownian suspensions 

    Ness, Christopher; Sun, Jin
    The images are the raw figures used to produce the plots in the paper entitled: “Shear thickening regimes of dense non-Brownian suspensions” with DOI:10.1039/C5SM02326B published in the Journal “Soft Matter” by the Royal ...
  • Simplicity in complexity – towards a soft matter physics of caramel 

    Weir, Simon
    Caramel is a mixture of sugars, milk proteins, fat and water cooked at high temperatures to initiate Maillard reactions. We study caramels as ‘active emulsion-filled protein gels’, in which fat droplets are chemically-bonded ...
  • Sudden relaminarisation and lifetimes in forced isotropic turbulence 

    Linkmann, Moritz; Morozov, Alexander
    We demonstrate an unexpected connection between isotropic turbulence and wall-bounded shear flows. We perform direct numerical simulations of isotropic turbulence forced at large scales at moderate Reynolds numbers and ...
  • Swimming In a Crystal 

    Brown, Aidan T.; Vladescu, Ioana D.; Dawson, Angela; Vissers, Teun; Schwarz-Linek, Jana; Lintuvuori, Juho S.; Poon, Wilson C. K.
    We study catalytic Janus particles and Escherichia coli bacteria swimming in a two-dimensional colloidal crystal. The Janus particles orbit individual colloids and hop between colloids stochastically, with a hopping rate ...
  • Theory of high pressure hydrogen, made simple / AIRAPT 2015 data 

    Magdau, Ioan; Ackland, Graeme J.
    We report molecular dynamics calculations for Phase I of hydrogen which show that all the phase transitions can be understood in a classical model with simple treatment of exchange-correlation. We present code for a simple ...
  • Towards a unified description of the rheology of hard-particle suspensions 

    Guy, B. M.; Hermes, M.; Poon, W. C. K.
    The rheology of suspensions of Brownian, or colloidal, particles (diameter~$d \lesssim 1~\mu$m) differs markedly from that of larger grains ($d \gtrsim 50~\mu$m). Each of these two regimes has been separately studied, but ...
  • Two-scale evolution during shear reversal in dense suspensions 

    Ness, Christopher; Sun, Jin
    Matlab data files used to plot the figures in a paper titled "Two-scale evolution during shear reversal in dense suspensions".
  • UK Research Software Survey 2014 

    Hettrick, Simon; Antonioletti, Mario; Carr, Les; Chue Hong, Neil; Crouch, Stephen; De Roure, David; Emsley, Iain; Goble, Carole; Hay, Alexander; Inupakutika, Devasena; Jackson, Mike; Nenadic, Aleksandra; Parkinson, Tim; Parsons, Mark I; Pawlik, Aleksandra; Peru, Giacomo; Proeme, Arno; Robinson, John; Sufi, Shoaib
    This spreadsheet contains the anonymised data collected as part of a survey of UK researchers in their use of research software. We asked people specifically about “research software” which we defined as: “Software ...
  • What is the ‘minimum inhibitory concentration’ (MIC) of pexiganan acting on Escherichia coli? - A cautionary case study 

    Jepson, Alys; Schwarz-Linek, Jana; Ryan, Lloyd; Ryadnov, Maxim; Poon, Wilson C. K.
    We measured the minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) of the antimicrobial peptide pexiganan acting on Escherichia coli, and report an intrinsic variability in such measurements. These results led to a detailed study of ...
  • Word learning under infinite uncertainty - Simulation codes and sample output 

    Blythe, Richard A; Smith, Andrew D M; Smith, Kenny
    These are codes to simulate the three models of word learning described in the paper "Word Learning Under Infinite Uncertainty" by R A Blythe, A D M Smith and K Smith, to appear in Cognition. These codes can be used to ...
