    please proofreading a very short sentence

    Hello,

    have someone time to proof the following sentence?

    The group of Prof. Zimmerman studied a single polymer diffusing in a flow inside a channel.

    Thank you.

    (The blue highlighted phrase sounds okay to me, but I cannot vouch as I am not sure about the subject)

    Thank you.

    Prof. Zimmerman's group sounds better. Or Prof. Zimmerman's research group.

    I understand polymers are to do with plastics and are solid materials. I don't understand how a polymer would 'diffuse' (spread in all directions). I thought only gases or liquids diffuse.
