Kinetics and morphology of cluster growth in a model of short-range attractive colloids.

Abstract

We present results from detailed three-dimensional Brownian dynamics simulations of the self-assembly process in quenched short-range attractive colloids. Clusters obtained in the simulations range from dense faceted crystals to fractal aggregates which show ramified morphology on large length scales but close-packed crystalline morphology on short length… (More)
