Measuring Inter-Particle Forces at an Interface with Optical Tweezers and a Long Working-Distance Objective Lens
An optical tweezer set up is used to measure the forces between polystyrene microspheres on the interface between mineral oil and water. The trap is controlled through Matlab Simulink andExpand
Reliable Langmuir Blodgett colloidal masks for large area nanostructure realization
Abstract The fabrication of highly ordered nanostructures over large areas is key for many technologies and colloidal lithography using the Langmuir Blodgett technique appears a simple andExpand
Single-particle tracking of the formation of a pseudoequilibrium state prior to charged microgel cluster formation at interfaces
The correlation between micron-sized particles and their self-assembly at fluid interfaces is important in several applications, including the stabilization of Pickering emulsions and creation ofExpand
Stabilizing CO2 foams using APTES surface-modified nanosilica: Foamability, foaminess, foam stability, and transport in oil-wet fractured porous media
Abstract Foam stability and the improvement of its transport from fracture to matrix have been two major issues in the field of foam injection into fractured petroleum reservoirs as an enhanced oilExpand
2D stokesian simulation of particle aggregation at quiescent air/oil-water interfaces.
It is found that initial particle position plays a small role on equilibrium interfacial microstructure but has a significant impact on aggregation kinetics but interfacial hydrodynamic interactions and inter-particle forces have a strong impact on equilibrium microst structure by altering the amount particles can reposition, which is consistent with published results.

Building Reconfigurable Devices Using Complex Liquid-Fluid Interfaces.
A broad overview is given, from fundamentals to applications, of the use of liquid-fluid interfaces to generate complex, all-liquid devices with a myriad of potential applications. Expand
Approaches to self-assembly of colloidal monolayers: A guide for nanotechnologists.
This review presents an extensive classification and comparison of the different techniques adopted for 2D self-assembly in order to provide useful guidelines for scientists approaching this field. Expand
Self assembly of oppositely charged latex particles at oil-water interface.
In sequential-mixtures for the first time, a new phase in colloidal monolayers called 2d-bi crystalline domains is observed, a possible mechanism leading to formation of these 2d bi crystalline structures has been discussed. Expand
