    • Assembly of hard spheres in a cylinder: a computational and experimental study 

      Fu, Lin; Bian, C; IV, CWS; Cruz, DF; López, GP; Charbonneau, Patrick (2017-03-10)
      Hard spheres are an important benchmark of our understanding of natural and synthetic systems. In this work, colloidal experiments and Monte Carlo simulations examine the equilibrium and out-of-equilibrium assembly of hard ...
    • Correlation lengths in quasi-one-dimensional systems via transfer matrices 

      Charbonneau, Patrick; Hu, Yi; Fu, Lin (Molecular Physics, 2018-06)
      © 2018 Informa UK Limited, trading as Taylor & Francis Group. Using transfer matrices up to next-nearest-neighbour interactions, we examine the structural correlations of quasi-one-dimensional systems of hard disks confined ...
    • Gardner Phenomenology in Minimally Polydisperse Crystalline Systems 

      Charbonneau, Patrick; Corwin, Eric I; Fu, Lin; Tsekenis, Georgios; Naald, Michael van der
      We study the structure and dynamics of crystals of minimally polydisperse hard spheres at high pressures. Structurally, they exhibit a power-law scaling in their probability distribution of weak forces and small interparticle ...
    • Soft Self-assembly and Densest Packings in Colloidal Models 

      Fu, Lin (2017)
      Inspired by the beauty of various materials with distinct structures and functions in nature, researchers have been dedicating themselves to discover new ways of creating functional artificial materials to fulfill ...
