The quasi-one-dimensional colloid fluid revisited.


We report the results of studies of the pair correlation function and equation of state of a quasi-one-dimensional colloid suspension, focusing attention on the behavior in the density range near close packing. Our data show that, despite deviations from true one-dimensional geometry, the colloid fluid is well described as a hard rod Tonks fluid. In our… (More)
