University of Luxembourg RU Physics and Materials (soft matter physics)
- Experimental soft matter physics, fundamental and applied, with strongly interdisciplinary character.
- Materials in focus: colloids, liquid crystals, polymer solutions, nanoparticle suspensions.
- Expertise in polarizing microscopy, ordered fluids and topological defects, physics and chemistry of self-assembly, thermodynamics of phase transitions.
Major Materials & Manufacturing projectsIn our applied research we target tomorrow's soft, flexible, light-weight high-performance and responsive materials, currently with three main foci: wearable technology (sensors, adaptive textiles), soft robotics (soft actuators) and bioinspired nanocomposites (construction by self-assembly).
Technical / technological capabilitiesOptical microscopy, microfluidics, electrospinning, ultrasound processing, dielectric spectroscopy.
Main customers / collaborationsCollaborations with universities in Europe, USA, South Korea and Japan, interacting with scientists, artists and architects. Industry collaboration with Merck (UK).
