Emergent Nonequilibrium Dynamics in Soft Materials

April 23, 2021



Nonequilibrium states upon collectivity and cooperativity such as through self-organizability govern various physical phenomena in soft matter systems. In recent years, there have been reported a lot of novel approaches based on biological, topological, and/or 2D material systems, most of which offer not only a large playground for fundamental physics but also the enriched possibilities towards development of functional materials and practical applications.
