[particles] In both cases the fluorescent particles are 2 microns in diameter. The left picture shows particles moving in pure water; the right picture shows particles moving in a concentrated solution of DNA, a viscoelastic solution in other words. The movies are 4 seconds of data, total; you can see a slight jump in the movie when it loops around.

With these sorts of images, we can do microrheology.
