Riassunto analitico
A particle placed in soft matter distorts its host and creates an energy landscape. This can occur ,for example, for particle in liquid crystals, for particle on lipid bilayers or for particles trapped at fluid interfaces.Particles become trapped at interfaces because they eliminate a patch of fluid interface , with a significant decrease in energy. Once attached ,they can distort the interface to minimize wetting energies; distortion has an associated energy, the product of interfacial area and the surface tension. <br>This thesis will explore that concept for capillary interactions with particles trapped at fluid interfaces, addressing interactions with curvature capillary migration.<br><br>
