ESMI Platforms


ESMI research and development activities are dedicated to continually updating the instrumentation for physical experiments, broadening the variety of available soft matter materials and setting up new simulation techniques with a view to improving the infrastructure offered as part of the ESMI access program.

This will widen opportunities to study a broader range of complex soft matter systems. Responses to external fields and the associated far-from-equilibrium phenomena are a focus of our investigations. Partners from industry are involved in joint technique development activities to ensure that these are both robust and user-friendly.
