Soft matter

Soft matter materials include colloidal systems, surfactants, polymers, gels and glasses.

Our research includes:

  • novel polymer batteries
  • auxetic liquid crystal elastomers for biological tissue replacement
  • novel liquid crystal systems for higher resolution display and non-display applications
  • environmentally-sustainable cellulose-based systems as composites
  • improved processes for pharmaceutical and food manufacturing
  • high-impact resistant polymer composites
