Colloids are ubquitious in our everyday experience in various forms and have a wide range of applications in foods, petrol and the drug industries. Colloids can behave like molecules, but because they are relatively big, move much slower than molecules. In this way, colloids form a powerful model system for investigating an atomic or molecular system. The so-called colloid hard sphere system is used the most for this purpose. Rojman Zargar explores the thermodynamics of colloidal hard sphere glasses.
