The ice-water interface and its interactions with colloidal monolayers

Abstract:

We investigate the interaction of colloidal particles with the ice-water interface using a combination of a directional solidification stage, a light microscope and thin sample cells. Firstly, we focus on separating the contributions of colloids from that of salt in inducing the Mullins- Sekerka instability of the ice-water interface. We show that while the instabilities more quickly develop at higher freezing velocities, the presence of the particles enhances the development of the p...
