Date for the Diary: Light Scattering for Soft Matter – Techniques and Applications: 4/5 September 2017

A two day Discussion Meeting on ‘Light Scattering for Soft Matter – Techniques and Applications’, organized at the University of Leeds between 4th and 5th September 2017. The meeting will focus on the development and status of the field of dynamic and static light scattering applied to a variety of materials and questions within soft matter. A particular emphasis will be placed on light scattering techniques developed for the investigation of turbid systems where multiple scattering becomes significant. The use of  light scattering to study materials based on polymers, colloids, and liquid crystals, and many other soft composite systems will be covered and applications important to industry e.g. within the food, energy, agriculture and household care area will be discussed. The meeting aims at a broad audience from both academia and industry and is organised to facilitate discussions and sharing of knowledge and ideas.
