Structure and dynamics of two-dimensional colloidal hard spheres

Abstract:

The structural and dynamic behaviour of quasi-two-dimensional monodisperse and bidisperse colloidal hard spheres are studied by optical microscopy. Firstly, a full characterisation of the equilibrium structure is presented through a consideration of structural correlation functions and number fluctuations. Comparison to fundamental measure theory and Monte Carlo simulations confirms both the behaviour of the system as a model for hard disks and the equation of state. The differing str...
