Microsphere viscometers for low temperature applications

Gloos, K. ; Schoepe, Wilfried ; Simola, J. T. ; Tuoriniemi, J. T.


We describe two types of viscometer utilizing metallic microspheres. These spheres are set into stationary translational motion or into translational oscillations. The motion of these charged microparticles is induced and detected via an electric field. The observed damping of the motion yields information on the dissipation mechanisms and the viscosity of the medium investigated. The advantages ...
