Division of Complex Materials

– at the Department of Physics

The goal of our research is to develop new understandings of basic physical properties and processes in soft and complex matter.

One physical model system researched within the division is nano-layered silicate patchy particles, or in other words clay.

Examples of possible applications emerging from our research include: CO2 capture and retention by natural and nature-inspired materials, next generation electronics, smart materials, complex photonic materials, soft scaffolds for bioengineering, new composite cementious eco-materials.

Research groups

Laboratory of Soft and complex matter

We study the physics of soft and complex matter, i.e. composite or non-composite materials with easily deformable nano-, mesostructures by application of external fields, such as mechanical stress, electric or magnetic fields or by thermal fluctuations.

Theoretical physics

Theoretical studies within quantum optics, complex phenomena and biophysics, including large-time statistical properties of granular flows and cavity quantum electrodynamics. Publications by Bo-Sture Skagerstam. Contact: Bo-Sture Skagerstam

Experiment - theory - simulation

Combination of experiment, theory and simulations enable us to obtain new important information and details on soft and complex materials.
