Within a general theoretical framework, we study the effective, deformation-induced interaction between two colloidal particles trapped at a fluid interface in the regime of small deformations. In many studies, this interaction has been computed with the ansatz that the actual interface configuration for the pair is given by the linear superposition of the interface deformations around the single particles. Here, we assess the validity of this approach and compute the leading term of the… CONTINUE READING
