Controlled Assembly and Optical Properties of 2D Latex Multilayers
O. D. Velev and N. D. Denkov, unpublished results (1992)
This page contains images from unpublished results from the experiments on the controlled formation of 2D crystalline latex multilayers. The multilayers were grown from latex suspensions of 1 m m in diameter microspheres. The cell for controlled radial growth allows precise manipulation of the speed of water evaporation (by fixing the temperature gradient across the top and bottom) and meniscus shape (by injecting or ejecting some suspension through the side channels).
