Soft Matter Physics

Controlled assembly of nanoparticles into two and three-dimensional solids, atoms and polymers adsorbed on surfaces, growth of nanowires and their interface to living cells, stretching single molecules, magnetic vortices and materials, nanolithography and nucleation of soot in flames; these are all among the many subjects of soft matter physics at K-State. Our eclectic soft matter group works at the interface between physics, chemistry and biology to understand how the manifold properties of soft matter emerge. Our research extends to biophysics and solid state. For more details about the KSU Soft Matter research program, visit some of the individual pages listed on the side menu.
