2D assembly of latex microspheres in wetting films on solid substrate

 


 

We want to understand the factors and forces of crystallization and to find ways to control the process.

 


 

Schematics of the experimental cell
 

 

 

The cell is loaded with suspension of micrometer size latex microspheres and the 2D crystallization is followed by optical microscopy through the glass substrate.
