Project

Self-assembly of colloids with directional interaction.

We plan to study the self-assembly of colloidal particles with directional interactions, i.e., Janus spheres and lock-and-key colloids, and address the kinetic growth of clusters, the influence of fluctuating membranes. Different aggregates will be investigated depending on the size of particles, the interaction strength, the number of species, etc.
