    • Equilibrium Phase Behavior and Self-assemble Dynamics of a Continuous-Space Microphase Former 

      Zhuang, Yuan (2016)
      The microphase segregation behavior, which exhibits periodic patterns on a mesoscale, has been found in many systems where it has demonstrated its extreme industrial usefulness in the diblock copolymer system. When studying ...
    • Equilibrium Phase Behavior of a Continuous-Space Microphase Former. 

      Zhuang, Yuan; Zhang, Kai; Charbonneau, Patrick (Phys Rev Lett, 2016-03-04)
      Periodic microphases universally emerge in systems for which short-range interparticle attraction is frustrated by long-range repulsion. The morphological richness of these phases makes them desirable material targets, but ...
    • Equilibrium Phase Behavior of the Square-Well Linear Microphase-Forming Model. 

      Zhuang, Yuan; Charbonneau, Patrick (J Phys Chem B, 2016-07-07)
      We have recently developed a simulation approach to calculate the equilibrium phase diagram of particle-based microphase formers. Here, this approach is used to calculate the phase behavior of the square-well linear model ...
    • Microphase Equilibrium and Assembly Dynamics 

      Zhuang, Yuan; Charbonneau, Patrick (2017-08-23)
      Despite many attempts, ordered equilibrium microphases have yet to be obtained in experimental colloidal suspensions. The recent computation of the equilibrium phase diagram of a microscopic, particle-based microphase former ...
    • Phase diagram and aggregation dynamics of a monolayer of paramagnetic colloids 

      Pham, An T; Zhuang, Yuan; Detwiler, Paige; Socolar, Joshua ES; Charbonneau, Patrick; Yellen, Benjamin B (2017-06-01)
      We have developed a tunable colloidal system and a corresponding simulation model for studying the phase behavior of particles assembling under the influence of long-range magnetic interactions. A monolayer of paramagnetic ...
    • Recent Advances in the Theory and Simulation of Model Colloidal Microphase Formers. 

      Zhuang, Yuan; Charbonneau, Patrick (J Phys Chem B, 2016-08-18)
      This mini-review synthesizes our understanding of the equilibrium behavior of particle-based models with short-range attractive and long-range repulsive (SALR) interactions. These models, which can form stable periodic ...
