Soft Condensed Matter Physics in Molecular and Cell Biology

Soft Condensed Matter Physics in Molecular and Cell Biology

1st Edition

W.C.K. Poon, David Andelman
January 13, 2006

Soft condensed matter physics, which emerged as a distinct branch of physics in the 1990s, studies complex fluids: liquids in which structures with length scale between the molecular and the macroscopic exist. Polymers, liquid crystals, surfactant solutions, and colloids fall into this category....

Ultrafast Photonics
