Welcome to the
The Group of 'Polymers & Soft Matter',
leaded by Professor J. Colmenero, extends the activity
of the group of 'Polymers and non-Crystalline Materials', which exists since
1985. Taking inspirations from classical polymer physics, soft matter physics
and the physics of condensed matter, this group has developed over last
years a robust and pioneering methodology to investigate structure and dynamics
of polymer and glass-forming systems in general at different length and
time scales. This methodology is based on the combination of different experimental
relaxation techniques with neutron scattering and molecular dynamics simulations.
The organization of the group is in fact driven by this methodology and
the staff of the group is composed by experts in different techniques/methods,
all of them being involved in the scientific objectives defined at any time..
