Structured soft interfaces in Leiden

Computational Physics Group

On 23 – 27 January 2017 Andrei Zvelindovsky was an invited participant of the discussion Lorentz workshop ‘Structured soft interfaces: caught between multi-scale simulation and application’ held at Lorentz International Center for scientific workshops in Leiden, the Netherlands.

From the workshop aim description:

The science of soft materials is slowly moving into the direction of predictive capability. Yet, as functional flexibility and programmability usually relies on compositional heterogeneity, these materials are naturally rich of various types of interfaces – between different constituents and between domains – that are often structured themselves and generally pose a challenge to scientific investigation, owing to the variation of length and time scales that they feature along different dimensions. Since these interfaces link domains with distinctly different structural and/or physical – electronic, chemical and/or mechanical – characteristics, they are of utmost importance for material performance and function. This is particularly apparent in biology, where structured membranes…
