Vast of vloeibaar? Zachte deeltjes en de glasovergang in zachte materie Soft, glasslike materials have gained attention of researchers in the last couple of years, due to their ability of becoming a solid with a very soft structure. These structures can very well describe for instance human tissue or liquid/glass transition. PCF researchers have written an article about the latter in PRL.
