In the Louisiana Engineering Activity in Rheology and Nanomaterials Lab we investigate the rheology and energy transport of nanoparticles in suspensions placed within electric and magnetic fields. The mission of our group is to seek to create new field-controlled fluid systems containing nanofillers that previously have not been placed inside of these smart systems. The exploration of nanoparticles suspended in fluids but directed by fields of electromagnetic energy will lead to the creation of new fluid-based devices. These devices can reduce the energy costs by allowing an adjustable mechanical response to digitally controlled fields.
