Welcome to the
Partnership for
Soft Condensed Matter

The Partnership for Soft Condensed Matter is a scientific and technical platform supporting ambitious large-scale soft matter research projects related to  nanomaterials, environmental and energy sciences, biotechnology and related fields.

The PSCM facilitates a deeper exploitation of state-of-the-art neutron instruments and synchrotron beamlines in combination with on-site specialised sample preparation and characterisation facilities. Together these enable cutting-edge experiments for the investigation of the structure and dynamics of bulk and interfacial soft matter and related systems.

Located on the EPN Science Campus in Grenoble, France, the PSCM is a joint initiative of the ESRF and the ILL. Academic and industrial organisations can join the PSCM as Collaborative Partner Organizations (CPOs) to pursue fundamental and applied soft matter research in their specific area of interest. All ILL and ESRF soft matter studies can benefit from the PSCM equipment and expertise.
