Soft microgels are ideal model systems due to their ability to deform and adapt their shape upon external stimuli. Here, we use optical tweezers to measure the diffusion of soft core-shell microgels. We report an anomalous, subdiffusive behaviour, which may be linked to the multiple length scales present within core-shell microgels.
