Sector of Biological and Soft Systems (BSS)
The 21st Century promises a major expansion at the interface of physics with the biological sciences and nanotechnology. These are areas which fall outside the conventional boundaries of the scientific disciplines of Chemistry, Physics and Biology, requiring a collaborative, multidisciplinary approach. The Biological and Soft Systems Sector of the Cavendish Laboratory (BSS), formed in 2004, is pursuing such multidisciplinary research. Using techniques and inspirations from classical polymer physics, soft matter physics and the physics of condensed matter, we build on this foundation with exciting progress in protein folding, biomaterials, cell biophysics and nanoscience, using theoretical, computational, and experimental methods. The BSS Sector is ideally placed, with the right expertise, to be a major player in these exciting new areas of science. BSS is also a significant part of the Physics of Medicine initiative, and much of our research activity now takes place within the new Centre for the Physics of Medicine. Our Key Strengths are:

Self Assembly in Soft Matter
Structure, Kinetics and Material Science of Complex Fluids
Soft ("squishy") matter is an inevitable part of everyday life. Living cells (and we) are it, and so are numerous things we use and endure: paint, soap, milk, ice-cream, fog... The complex structures and dynamics that arise out of soft condensed matter are large and slow compared to the atomic scale. There is considerable overlap between the fields of soft condensed matter physics, physical chemistry and the biological sciences in different aspects: the underlying science, self assembly, the materials, as well as the techniques that can be used. We like to study real-space local structure and real-time dynamics in three dimensions via confocal microscopy, and at the same time use pulsed-gradient nuclear magnetic resonance to measure diffusion coefficients and transport properties precisely. Students in the lab will learn to use magnetic resonance (NMR: a technique used extensively in chemistry and medicine) and confocal microscopy (a technique used extensively in biology) in a novel and complementary way. Materials of interest in soft condensed matter physics are "complex fluids": colloids, liquid crystals, micro-emulsions, surfactant mesophases. Soft materials respond sensitively to external electric, magnetic and surface forces. Controlling self assembly in soft matter enables the creation of novel materials that interact with external fields: photonic materials, electrorheological ("ER") fluids and liquid crystal elastomers.

Condensed Matter Research
Condensed matter physics, the single largest area of physics world-wide, encompasses a diverse range of sub-fields such as correlated systems, magnetism, structural properties, and nanoscience. The condensed matter group has 7 faculty members, both experimentalists and theorists, with a close collaborations with researchers at UWM and elsewhere. While most of the research, funded mainly by NSF and DOE, is carried out at UWM, faculty and students also carry out experiments at various national user facilities. Faculty: Daniel Agterberg Marija Gajdardziska-Josifovska Prasenjit Guptasarma Lian Li ... Bimal Sarma and Michael Weinert
Daniel Agterberg is a theorist working in the area of superconductivity and strongly correlated electronic materials, focusing on topics such as the nature of high-temperature superconductors and the consequences of topological structures on electronic wave functions. His research is driven by close communications with experimentalists to identify relevant problems that lie at the forefront of materials science, and combines analytical many-body/symmetry-based techniques with numerical calculations. He has recently collaborated with Scientists at Cornell University, the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH-Zurich), Stanford University, and the University of Tokyo.
Prasenjit Guptasarma is interested in the materials science of systems with strongly correlated electrons. His work seeks to elucidate the fundamental physics of unusual electronic and magnetic properties of materials, such as those near a critical phase transition, or bordering an unconventional quantum physical ground state. Current activities in his group include studies in the areas of novel superconductivity and magnetism, ferroelectricity, and multiferroics. Guptasarma's research lab hosts equipment for floating-zone growth of high-purity bulk single crystals, growth of nanostructures using high-pressure and solution-based techniques, and measurement of properties such as magnetic, transport, dielectric, specific heat, and ultrasound velocity, at extreme temperatures (350mK - 800K) and in magnetic fields (up to 9 Tesla). In addition, his group performs experiments at synchrotron light sources, neutron sources, and high magnetic field facilities in North America and abroad.

Theoretical Condensed Matter Physics
These techniques are now being applied to new and exciting areas of research at Cornell. The onset of chaos in low-dimensional systems and spatially-extended dynamical systems are being studied using renormalization group methods. Ordering induced by disorder is being investigated through models of magnetism incorporating temperature, quantum fluctuations, and dirt. Hysteresis loops in magnets, sliding charge-density waves, and paper when crumpled are all being studied for their exhibition of crackling noise with fractal and self-similar avalanches of all sizes. On a more practical level, theories describing surface growth (such as the deposition of metal wires on computer chips) are rooted in renormalization-group ideas. The concepts of order parameters, symmetry breaking, and topological defects that emerged from the theory of superfluid helium-3 are being stretched and broadened in various directions. Cornell has played a central role in the theory of defects in liquid crystals. The department is a world center for the theory of quasicrystals—new, exotic phases with pentagonal or icosahedral order coexisting with long-range but non-periodic translational order. Traditional solid state theory remains vital here as it extends itself into new regimes. Condensed matter physicists explore the weirdness of quantum mechanics in directions relevant to quantum computation. They predict the behavior of simple materials under extreme conditions. And they pursue the quantum theory of mesoscopic devices, using random-matrix theory and many-body physics to model everything from quantum dots to bouncing buckyballs.

The area of major concentration is condensed matter physics, which includes the work of experimentalists, David Carroll Oana Jurchescu , and Richard T. Williams , and theorists Natalie A. W. Holzwarth William C. Kerr G. Eric Matthews , and Timo Thonhauser The group working with Richard Williams uses ultrafast spectroscopy to investigate the immediate consequences of absorption of a photon by a crystalline solid. They use ultrashort (~80 fs) laser pulses to create an electronic excitation of the solid and monitor its evolution within the coupled electron-lattice system. Phenomena of interest include self-trapping of excitons and of charge carriers in insulators, relaxation of hot carriers and surface state dynamics in semiconductors, excitonic processes of lattice defect formation, and desorption from surfaces. Photoelectron spectroscopy and related surface science techniques are conducted both with ultrafast excitation/probe laser techniques for dynamic studies and in conventional synchrotron radiation experiments at the National Synchrotron Light Source. Concerns with surfaces, lattice defects, and laser-solid interactions lead naturally to a parallel interest in the spatial atomic structure of surfaces and surface defects, observed directly by scanning tunneling microscopy and atomic force microscopy. The scanning tunneling microscope is used to characterize laser effects on metals and semiconductors, as well as more general atomic-scale studies.

Condensed matter physics and biophysics may be described as the search for simple, unifying explanations for complicated phenomena observed in liquids and solids. Advances in the field lead to universal concepts that govern the behavior of a large number of particles. Modern research embraces both "quantum" systems (the behavior of electrons in solids at low temperature) and "soft" condensed matter (liquid crystals, polymers, and biological structure are examples). At Princeton, experimentalists are active in topological phases, novel superconductivity in organic metals, spin-liquids, quantum spin-textures, topological insulators, quantum magnetism in spin-chain materials, the physics of nanometer-scale structures, high-temperature superconductors, ferromagnetic oxides, charge and spin density wave compounds, mesoscopic properties of subnanometer wires, quantum control of single electron spins,quantum computing, the fractional quantum Hall effect and topological quantum Hall effect and spin-textures. In "soft" condensed matter physics, experimental interest includes research on sedimentation, lyotropic liquid crystals, pattern formation in physical and biological systems, and crystallization of polyballs. The work in biophysics is an extension of the interests of the "soft" condensed matter faculty. Experimental areas include the understanding of molecular motors, the dynamics of DNA, the physics of biomembranes, biopolymers and proteins, and probes of cellular structure.

Thus, CMP overlaps considerably with materials science. In particular, the modern electronics and opto-electronics industries are underpinned by the fundamental understanding of semiconductors, liquid crystals, conducting polymers and other materials provided by condensed matter physicists. Earth scientists find that results from CMP can help them in understanding mineralogical phase transformations. Increasingly, condensed matter physicists are unravelling the complex behaviour of suspensions and polymers, which are important in everything from paints through shampoo to tomato ketchup. Finally, the methods and results of CMP are now being applied to the study of biological systems, which are, after all, specialised forms of condensed matter! It is therefore not surprising that more physicists work in
