We use decorated-lattice models to explore the phase behavior of two types of DNA-linked colloidal mixtures: systems with identical nanoparticles functionalized with two different DNA strands (mixture Aab) and mixtures involving two types of particles each one functionalized with a different DNA strand (mixture Aa-Ab). The model allows us to derive the properties of the mixtures from the well-known behavior of underlying spin-n Ising models with temperature and activity dependent effective… CONTINUE READING
