Abstract

We show that real-time feedback control can be used to study three-dimensional nanoparticle transport dynamics. We apply the method to study the behavior of adsorbed nanoparticles at a silicone oil-water interface in a microemulsion system over a range of particles sizes from 24 nm to 2000 nm. The technique can be applied in the future to study three-dimensional dynamics in a range of systems, including complex fluids, gels, biological cells and geological media.
