The ISM is in Regents Hall, a purpose-built science building that opened in 2012.
We have established two shared facilities dedicated to soft matter research, and we welcome industrial and academic researchers from relevant disciplines to visit and work with us.
- Characterization Lab, located at Regents Hall Room 115, is equipped with state-of-the-art instruments for in-depth measurements in the following categories: microscopy, rheometry, light scattering, microcalorimetry, spectroscopy, mechanical test, and surface analysis.
- Preparation & Evaluation Lab, located at 527 Reiss Science Building, is equipped with tools for sample preparation (such as milling, emulsification, and homogenization) and quick evaluation of sample properties including particle size, surface charge, light absorption, wetting, and others.
