New paper out: Hydrogel surfaces are softer than you think! Published in Experimental Mechanics

Hydrogels are inherently slippery — we know this from touching jello and sliding on banana peels. It’s been shown in many of our prior publications, as well as publications from the Sawyer group (University of Florida), the Spencer group (ETH), the tribology group at Imperial College, and many others. However, making polyacrylamide hydrogels in the […]
