Density dependence of orientational order in one-patch particles.

Abstract

Closely packed spherical patchy particles exhibit a range of orientationally ordered equilibrium structures depending on patch size and particle arrangement due to the existence of a sticky inter-patch interaction and rotational degrees of freedom. We experimentally study the packing density dependence of such ordering in particles with a thin deposited… (More)
