Abstract: 1B.00001 : GSOFT Short Course: Structures and Order in Soft Matter Physics
8:00 AM–5:30 PM
The course will start with an overview of the increasingly diverse structures arising in soft matter systems, and introduce how these structures can be described. More intricate structural aspects will be highlighted in reviews of different kinds of simulation studies. The course will then review techniques of determining structures in experimental systems, such as optical microscopy, transmission or scanning electron microscopy, and scattering methods.
Who Should Attend?
Anyone who needs or wants to describe the structure of the soft-matter systems they study, on the colloidal or nano-scale, both in experiments and simulations. Designed to give an introduction into a wide range of experimental and simulation methods for structure determination.
