Concentration Dependent Sedimentation of Colloidal Rods

Abstract

. This theoretical prediction is compared to experimental results. In the second part, experiments on fd-virus are described, both in the isotropic and nematic phase. First order in concentration results for this very long and thin (semi-flexible) rod are in agreement with the above theoretical prediction. Sedimentation profiles for the nematic phase show… (More)
