In this project, we tried to study the conformation and dynamics of supramolecular solutions by developing the technique of laser light scattering and by examining the fluid behavior near the critical mixing point. We improved the technique of photon correlation spectroscopy and the method of data analysis so that we succeeded in establishing a new technique for measuring particle size distributions. By relating the tricritical point of fluid mixtures to the theta point in polymer solutions, we could now study polymer solution behavior in the semidilute and gel regions. Author
