Assembly of the most topologically regular two-dimensional micro and nanocrystals with spherical, conical, and tubular shapes.


We consider how to control the extension of curvature-induced defects in the hexagonal order covering different curved surfaces. In these frames we propose a physical mechanism for improving structures of two-dimensional spherical colloidal crystals (SCCs). For any SCC comprising of about 300 or less particles the mechanism transforms all extended… (More)
