We study theoretically the structure and melting transition of two-dimensional (2D) binary mixtures of colloidal particles interacting via a dipole-dipole potential. Using a lattice sum method, we find that at zero temperature (T = 0) the system form... Read More

Controlling the self-assembly of binary copolymer mixtures in solution through molecular architecture (2011)
Journal Article
McLeish, T. C. B., Butler, M. F., Buzza, D. M. A., Atkins, D., Furzeland, S., Schuetz, P., & Greenall, M. J. (2011). Controlling the self-assembly of binary copolymer mixtures in solution through molecular architecture. Macromolecules, 44(13), 5510-5519. doi:10.1021/ma2008546

We present a combined experimental and theoretical study on the role of copolymer architecture in the self-assembly of binary PEO-PCL mixtures in water-THF and show that altering the chain geometry and composition of the copolymers can control the fo... Read More

Two-dimensional colloidal alloys (2011)
Journal Article
Law, A. D., Buzza, D. M. A., & Horozov, T. S. (2011). Two-dimensional colloidal alloys. Physical review letters, 106(12), doi:10.1103/physrevlett.106.128302

We study the structure of mixed monolayers of large (3μm diameter) and small (1μm diameter) very hydrophobic silica particles at an octane-water interface as a function of the number fraction of small particles ξ. We find that a rich variety of two-d... Read More
