The Soft Matter and Interfaces Research Group is led by Prof. Xuehua Zhang.

The main research topics include:

  • Colloids and interfaces: spontaneous liquid-liquid phase separation, droplet reactions, nanobubbles, self-propelling microdroplets

  • Nanomaterials: smart wound dressings, antifouling surfaces, surface microlens for solar harvesting, nanomaterials for surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy, electrospinning.

  • Fluid dynamics: wetting, evaporation, cold plasma-activated water, micro/nanobubbles for oil separation, computational fluid dynamics simulations of slurries
