We investigate the equilibrium phase behaviour, structure and dynamics of colloidal systems, their response to external fields and non-equilibrium phenomena. The new colloidal systems used in these studies are synthesized in-house.
Conﬁnement Induced Splay-to-Bend Transition of Colloidal Rods
We study the nematic phase of rodlike fd-virus particles conﬁned to channels with wedge-structured walls.
Softcomp was born as a Network of Excellence (NoE) supported by the EU aiming to establish a knowledge base for an intellegent design of functional and nanoscale soft matter composites.
