However, little is known when an active microscopic probe is used to locally perturb them far from the linear-response regime. Using a colloidal particle dragged periodically by scanning optical tweezers through a viscoelastic fluid, we investigate both, its linear and nonlinear microrheological response. With increasing particle velocity, we observe a transition from constant viscosity to a thinning regime, where the drag force on the probe becomes a nonlinear function of the particle velocity. We demonstrate that this transition is only determined by the ratio of the fluid's equilibrium relaxation time and the period of the driving.</dcterms:abstract> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:issued>2014-12-15</dcterms:issued> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource=""/> <dc:creator>Bechinger, Clemens</dc:creator> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:contributor>Gomez-Solano, Juan R.</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Bechinger, Clemens</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Gomez-Solano, Juan R.</dc:creator> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
