Soft Matter Demos

This website is aimed at distributing interactive simulation demos that illustrate the wonderful world of soft matter physics.

Structure Factor Demo

This is an interactive demonstration of the Static structure factor. It allows you to plot both radially averaged and 2-dimensional structure factors for a variety of (2D) crystal structures, and to explore which particles contribute to specific peaks in the structure factor or diffraction pattern.
