We report on a comprehensive theory-simulation-experimental study of collective and self-diffusion in concentrated suspensions of charge-stabilized colloidal spheres. In theory and simulation, the spheres are assumed to interact directly by a hard-core plus screened Coulomb effective pair potential. The intermediate scattering function, fc(q, t), is calculated by elaborate accelerated Stokesian dynamics (ASD) simulations for Brownian systems where many-particle hydrodynamic interactions (HIs… Expand
Self-diffusion of nanoscale particles with hard and soft sphere models
The diffusion of particles in suspension is investigated by a thermostat based on fluctuating hydrodynamics for dynamic simulations of implicit-solvent coarse-grained model which can take intoExpand
Structure and dynamics in suspensions of soft core-shell colloids in the fluid regime.
Owing to the particle softness, the liquid-crystal coexistence regime is found to be broader than that of hard-sphere (HS) suspensions and the structure and short-time dynamics in fluid-regime suspensions of soft core-shell spherical particles are studied. Expand
Persistent Anti-Correlations in Brownian Dynamics Simulations of Dense Colloidal Suspensions Revealed by Noise Suppression.
A novel algorithm for the time-dependent velocity-autocorrelation function (VACF) is implemented essentially eliminating the noise of the bare random motion and reveals persistent anti-correlations manifested by a negative algebraic power-law tail at all densities. Expand
Non-Gaussian, transiently anomalous and ergodic self-diffusion of flexible dumbbells in crowded two-dimensional environments: coupled translational and rotational motions
L Langevin-dynamics simulations are employed to unveil non-Brownian and non-Gaussian center-of-mass self-diffusion of massive flexible dumbbell-shaped particles in crowded two-dimensional solutions and attribute these regimes to a crowding-induced transition from a viscous to a viscoelastic diffusion medium upon growing ϕ.

Observation of the Dynamic Equivalence between Soft Star Polymers and Hard Spheres via Compressibility Scaling
We propose a definition of the effective hard-sphere volume fraction (phi_HS) for liquids composed of soft repulsive particles by employing the condition of compressibility equivalence, and devise aExpand
Modeling deswelling, thermodynamics, structure, and dynamics in ionic microgel suspensions.
It is shown that deswelling mildly enhances self- diffusion and collective diffusion and the osmotic pressure, lowers the suspension viscosity, and significantly shifts the suspension crystallization point to higher concentrations. Expand
Dynamic Equivalence between Soft Star Polymers and Hard Spheres
Understanding the dynamics of soft colloids, such as star polymers, dendrimers, and microgels, is of scientific and practical importance. It is known that the excluded volume effect plays a key roleExpand
Investigation of the anomalous diffusion in the porous media: a spatiotemporal scaling

Microsecond hydrodynamic interactions in dense colloidal dispersions probed at the European XFEL
The dynamics of small nanoparticles dispersed in water are probed with multi-speckle XPCS taking advantage of the pulse structure of the European XFEL to demonstrate how X-ray pulse-induced dynamics can be controlled. Expand


Short-time transport properties in dense suspensions: from neutral to charge-stabilized colloidal spheres.
The validity of generalized Stokes-Einstein relations relating short-time diffusion properties to the high-frequency limiting viscosity is analyzed, and the distinctly different behavior of de-ionized charge-stabilized systems in comparison to hard spheres is pointed to. Expand
Short-time rheology and diffusion in suspensions of Yukawa-type colloidal particles.
The hybrid method is used to test the accuracy of a generalized Stokes-Einstein (GSE) relation proposed by Kholodenko and Douglas, showing its severe violation in low salinity systems, however, this GSE relation applies decently well. Expand

The dynamic data can be consistently described by the renormalized density fluctuation expansion theory of Beenakker and Mazur over a wide range of concentrations and ionic strengths and cross over monotonically from the bounding values of salt-free suspensions to those of neutral hard spheres.
