The effect of attractions on the local structure of liquids and colloidal fluids

Taffs, Jade; Malins, Alex; Williams, Stephen R.; Royall, C. Patrick


We revisit the role of attractions in liquids and apply these concepts to colloidal suspensions. Two means are used to investigate the structure; the pair correlation function and a recently developed topological method. The latter identifies structures topologically equivalent to ground state clusters formed by isolated groups of 5 < m < 13 particles, which are specific to the system under consideration. Our topological methodology shows that, in the case of Lennard-Jones, the addition...[Show more]
