This emerging theme of the Soft Matter group results from the wish to develop an interdisciplinary research taking advantage of strong competencies existing in Montpellier in agronomical and environmental sciences. Agronomical and environmental sciences are regularly facing physical phenomena relevant to soft matter. To reach a deeper understanding on these various physical phenomena, our key scientific approach relies on the design of experimental model systems. Its main objective is to derive general physical and physical-chemical mechanisms that are often hidden in the intrinsic complexity of agronomical and environmental systems.
