Anomalous grain growth in a polycrystalline monolayer of colloidal hard spheres

Abstract:

Understanding grain growth is key for controlling the microstructure and the mechanical properties of most polycrystalline materials, including metals, alloys and ceramics. However, the precise mechanisms and kinetics of grain growth remain poorly understood both at the theoretical level and experimentally as direct observation is cumbersome in atomic systems. Here, we study the grain growth process in a polycrystalline monolayer of colloidal hard spheres. We find that the bond-orientational ...
