Team : Soft Matter

Presentation

The research program of the Soft Matter team encompasses a broad variety of systems such as liquid crystals, surfactants, polymers, colloids and biomimetic systems. We aim at relating macroscopic properties to microscopic structure. Our research themes are: (i) Physics of biological and biomimetic systems, (ii) Complex interfaces, (iii) Jamming, plasticity and material failure, (iv) Soft matter for agronomy and environment, and (v) Soft Composites.
In each area of research we design model systems from commercial or newly synthesized molecules for better understanding of the phenomena. Various experimental techniques are used in order to get informations on braod length and time scales. Light, X-rays and neutron scattering; optical microscopy, rheology, microfluidics and micromanipulations.
The Soft Condensed Matter Team is currently composed of about 30 scientists (including 15 research fellows and faculty members), see this link. To know more about our reserch activities, please refer to our peer-reviewed articles by clicking here.
