The Manoharan Lab's research focuses on using various experimental techniques to study the physics of soft matter - or "squishy" - systems. This includes colloidal suspensions, foams, gels, emulsions, cells, viruses and protein assemblies. Check out our Research page to learn more about our current projects.

After an inspiring sing-along session, Jerome Fung successfully defended his thesis, "Measuring the 3D Dynamics of Multiple Colloidal Particles with Digital Holographic Microscopy," on Monday, June 17th.
The White Prize is awarded by the Physics Department for excellence in teaching in introductory courses. Tom Dimiduk was recognized for his work as a teaching fellow in the lab section of Physics 15c, the undergraduate course on Wave Phenomena. Jerome Fung was awarded the prize for his work as a teaching fellow in Physics 15b, Introductory Electromagnetism, and in the lab section of Physics 15c. Congratulations to both!
