Vinothan Manoharan is a Wagner Family Professor of Chemical Engineering and Professor of Physics at Harvard.  In his lab, he and his team use light scattering, optical microscopy, spectroscopy, synthesis and other experimental techniques to understand the physics of self-organization. For most of these experiments they use colloids, suspensions of particles typically about a micrometer in size.
