Giant Fluctuations

The aim of the Giant Fluctuations Topical Team is the investigation of non-equilibrium fluctuations associated to diffusion in complex fluids in the absence of gravity. These conditions cannot be easily tackled by theoretical models, such as transient diffusion, concentrated samples and large gradients, also in comparison to computational results. The focus of this Topical Team is on the investigation of non-equilibrium fluctuations in complex liquids, because of the rich phenomenology that can be attained by tuning the interactions in such systems. Since gravity quenches long-wavelength non-equilibrium fluctuations, it is important to study such phenomena under microgravity conditions to fully exploit the scale-free behaviour of the fluctuations.
