Welcome to Soft Matter Laboratory (Kurita Laboratory)

Soft materials are widely used not only in industry such as liquid crystals, rubber, plastics and drug delivery, but also in daily life as in detergent and food. Nevertheless, developments of soft matter strongly depend on empirical rules and we rarely understand why soft materials have so many functions. Especially, soft matter has not been well studied under heterogeneous environments as with temperature and pressure gradients. Then, we aim to understand the mechanism of soft matter behaviors and to find new structures, which lead to new functional products.
