Isotropic colloidal and nanoparticles

The use of simple isotropic interactions is still one of the most simple approach in particle based soft-matter. Our focus here is the self-assembly of collodal particles into a variety of equilibrium and non-equilibrium structures, and the characterization of these structures in terms of structure and dynamics.
