Welcome

The central research area within the Jena Center for Soft Matter (JCSM) is functional polymers ("soft matter"). In particular, this concerns the tailored molecular design of polymers, the targeted modification and functionalization of polymers, the detailed molecular characterization, their nano- and microscopic structuring in solution and on surfaces, and the investigation of the properties of the resulting innovative materials. The possible applications range from the life sciences via sensors and artificial photosynthesis to self-healing materials.
