To quantify thermophoretic effects we analyse the nonequilibrium steady state (NESS) of the particle in a constant temperature gradient perpendicular to the confining walls. We propose to determine thermophoretic forces from a "generalized potential" associated with the probability distribution of the particle position in the NESS. Experimentally we demonstrate, how this spatial probability distribution is measured and how thermophoretic forces can be extracted with 10 fN resolution. By varying temperature gradient and ambient temperature, the temperature dependence of Soret coefficient ST(T) is determined for r = 2.5 μm polystyrene and r = 1.35 μm melamine particles. The functional form of ST(T) is in good agreement with findings for smaller colloids. In addition, we measure and discuss hydrodynamic effects in the confined geometry. The theoretical and experimental technique proposed here extends thermophoresis measurements to so far inaccessible particle sizes and particle solvent combinations.</dcterms:abstract> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dc:creator>Bechinger, Clemens</dc:creator> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2017-06-13T12:37:41Z</dcterms:available> <dcterms:title>Direct measurement of thermophoretic forces</dcterms:title> <dc:creator>Eichhorn, Ralf</dc:creator> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Eichhorn, Ralf</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Helden, Laurent</dc:creator> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dc:rights>Attribution-NonCommercial 3.0 Unported</dc:rights> <dc:contributor>Helden, Laurent</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Bechinger, Clemens</dc:contributor> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
