Title Experimental techniques for studies of dynamics in soft materials
Abstract This chapter presents an overview of the various experimental techniques traditionally used for studies of dynamics in Soft Materials. First, we emphasize the importance of dynamics for macroscopic properties of these materials, then we compare advantages and disadvantages of the different techniques. These include mechanical and dielectric relaxation spectroscopy, NMR, light, X-ray, and neutron scattering. In particular, we discuss the advantages of neutron scattering spectroscopy. We emphasize the importance of combining neutron scattering with the other techniques for a complete analysis of the dynamics in Soft Materials.
