Soft Matter Theory

Research Field

Using statistical mechanics, we investigate the role of molecular-level interactions and structural order (or disorder) on the phase behaviour (e.g. liquid-to-solid transitions) and macroscopic properties of complex condensed matter systems, such as colloids, functional materials, amorphous metals and polymers, and self-assembled biomolecules.

Titel und Modulzuordnung


Biological systems, from proteins to living cells and organisms, obey physical principles. Our research groups in biophysics shape one of Germany's largest scientific clusters in this area.
