Soft Interfaces



Group members | Group website


The Soft interfaces team is interested in the link between the mechanical properties of the interfaces, their molecular structure and the role of the interfaces in the behavior of complex fluids. The approach is mainly experimental but strong relationships with theoricians are developed.
