For her PhD thesis, Chantal Carpentier examines the development of fluorescent dyes for quantitative imaging of contact forces in soft matter. The ultimate goal is hereby the direct visualization of force networks in three-dimensional granular systems, in particular the magnitude of individual contact forces between touching particles, as such providing valuable information on how forces are distributed throughout the bulk of a granular packing.
