There are many technically important materials and biomaterials that are "soft" at room temperature. Examples of such materials are: polymers, liquid crystals, colloids, and biomembranes. These materials are used in a wide range of technical and biotechnological applications. This course will deepen your understanding of the structure, dynamics and properties of these materials in a concerted manner and introduce you to some of their technical applications.
The course is a recommended course in the Masters program in Materials chemistry at Stockholm university.
