Our mission

The Soft Condensed Matter group focuses on the development and characterization of new model colloids and the quantitative 3D real-space analysis and manipulation of their self-assembly. Motivation comes both from the use of these systems as condensed matter model systems, and from their use as advanced materials in applications like photonic crystals and electronic-ink. In addition, we perform computer simulations and theory on soft condensed matter systems and try to bring these together with the experiments in a strongly synergistic approach.

The Molecular Biophysics group focuses on developing and exploiting fluorescence spectroscopy-based techniques in microscopy. The novel imaging methodologies under development in the group utilize advanced light sources, non-linear excitation methods and contrast based on fluorescence spectroscopy.

The Soft Condensed Matter & Biophysics section is part of the Debye Institute for Nanomaterials Science.
