Welcome to the home page of the Soft Matter Theory and Simulations Group of the University of Patras.

The group includes scientists from the Departments of Materials Science and Physics whose research interests are in the fields of liquid crystals, polymeric interfaces, self-organising dendrimers and dendronised polymers. Ongoing research activities cover molecular theory and computer simulation studies of:

  • specific molecular interactions and polymorphism of small molar mass liquid crystals
  • molecular modeling and phenomenology of tilted smectics and ferroelectric liquid crystals
  • biaxial nematics
  • fullerene containing liquid crystals
  • massive molecular flexibility in liquid crystalline oligomers and dendrimers
  • structure and nanomechanics of dendronised polymers
  • novel ordered fluid phases based on molecular shape non convexity
  • self-assembly properties of Janus particles, 2D nanopatterning
