The effect of inter-cluster interactions on the structure of colloidal clusters

Malins, Alex; Williams, Stephen; Eggers, Jens; Tanaka, Hajime; Royall, C. Patrick

Description

Colloidal systems present exciting opportunities to study clusters. Unlike atomic clusters, which are frequently produced at extremely low density, colloidal clusters may interact with one another. Here we consider the effect of such interactions on the intra-cluster structure in simulations of colloidal cluster fluids. A sufficient increase in density leads to a higher population of clusters in the ground state. In other words, inter-cluster interactions perturb the intra-cluster behaviour,...[Show more]
