Soft Condensed Matter Physics
Soft-matter physics, is a young sub-field of condensed matter physics. Soft condensed matter physics is the study of materials, such as fluids, liquid crystals, polymers, colloids and emulsions, that are “soft” to the touch. This field is generally described as materials physics oriented with a strong focus on understanding macromolecular assemblies. Materials termed soft matter exhibit this property due to a shared propensity of these materials to self-organize into mesoscopic physical structures.
