NWO Veni Award : How like charges attract?

Prize: NWOVeniScientific

Description

Particles with similar electrical charges generally repel each other, but in a saline solution, they can indeed attract each other electrically. In this manner, charged polymers can form all kinds of patterns under the influence of calcium ions. The researcher will unravel this surprising phenomenon using computer simulations and modelling.
