  • There is a growing interest in cylindrical structures of hard and soft particles. A promising new method to assemble such structures has recently been introduced by Lee et al. [Lee, Gizynski, and Grzybowski, Adv. Mater. 29, 1704274 (2017)ADVMEW0935-964810.1002/adma.201704274]. They used rapid rotations around a central axis to drive spheres of lower density than the surrounding fluid towards the axis. This resulted in different structures as the number of spheres is varied. Here, we present… CONTINUE READING
