We apply the recently developed triangular tessellation technique as presented by J. de Graaf et al. [Phys. Rev. E 80, 051405 (2009)] to calculate the free energy associated with the adsorption of anisotropic colloidal particles at a flat interface. From the free-energy landscape, we analyze the adsorption process, using a simplified version of Langevin dynamics. The present result is a first step towards understanding the time-dependent behavior of colloids near interfaces. This study shows a… CONTINUE READING
