Soft Matter Facility

The new Soft Matter Facility (SoMF) is the user facility focused on characterization of multifunctional soft materials. The establishment of SoMF is funded through the Research Development Fund and represents multiple colleges and centers across the university actively involved in soft materials-related research, including the Colleges of Engineering, Science, and Agriculture & Life Sciences at Texas A&M university.

The facility will initially include four instrumentation suites based on the soft-matter-centered research areas which will be unified by the general theme of characterization of hierarchically structured multi-component, multifunctional soft materials: Molecular Characterization, Processing & Mechanics, Thin Films & Interfacial Analysis, and Nanostructure Characterization.

Equipment:

Nanoscale Structures 

Molecular Characteristics

Thin Films & Interfaces
