Brownian Diffusion of a Colloidal Tetrahedral Cluster
The video features clips depicting the Brownian diffusion of a tetrahedral colloidal cluster diffusing through a solvent. The data was acquired using a laser scanning confocal microscope. Series of cross-sections are rapidly scanned by the confocal microscope, which are then used to produce a volumetric rendering. I then track the coordinates of the particles in the cluster, which I use to produce the series of CGI images seen at the end.
