Welcome to the Soft Materials Group! Soft matter refers to materials having complex structural and dynamic properties intermediate between those of crystals and fluids. Materials belonging to this category are polymers, liquid crystals, colloids, gels and foams. We study soft matter, combining it with low dimensional nanoparticles to achieve tailored hybrid materials. The fascinating properties of these unique material systems enable a wide spread of applications in the fields of energy, biomedical, optoelectronics and nanocomposites.
