We determine the phase behavior of hard spheres interacting with repulsive Yukawa (screened Coulomb) interaction using computer simulations. We study the effect of the hard-core diameter on the phase behavior of repulsive Yukawa particles by comparing our phase diagrams with that of repulsive point Yukawa particles. We show that for sufficiently high contact values of the pair potential (betaepsilon=20, 39, 81, and higher), the fluid-face-centered-cubic (fcc) solid, at high screening, the fluid… CONTINUE READING
