Dielectric RheoSANS is a new measurement technique that combines in situ electrical, mechanical, and scattering capabilities to probe the structure and dynamics of soft materials at equilibrium and under flow. This review summarizes the technique and presents data from model systems including conductive polymers, colloidal suspensions, and viscoelastic surfactant solutions. Finally, we identify several areas within soft matter that have historically combined dielectric, rheological, and structural characterization methods and discuss the outlook for studying those systems with dielectric RheoSANS.
