Grain boundary pinning in doped hard sphere crystals

Abstract:

Direct visual observations on how grain boundaries are pinned between multiple large spherical impurities during colloidal hard sphere crystallisation are presented. The fluid is stabilized between impurities and acts as a precursor for grain boundary formation. The range of fluid stabilisation by a single impurity is characterized by the frustration length, which goes through a maximum as a function of the impurity-to-particle size ratio. Grain boundaries are more strongly confined to the ar...
