Division on Soft Matter

Soft Matter is a highly interdisciplinary field involving scientists, mathematicians and engineers and is one of the fastest growing areas of research today. Soft matter unites a broad class of physical states ranging from colloids and micelles to biological and granular matter that are easily deformed by external stresses. These materials share a common feature in that predominant physical behaviors occur at energy scales comparable with thermal energy and quantum aspects that are typically unimportant. Self-assembly, non-equilibrium, driven/active matter, frustration, topology and folding are just a few of the many diverse topics addressed by soft matter researchers.
