As part of the School of Science and Technology's Joint Seminar Programme for the Engineering and Materials and Computing Informatics Research Centres, Dr Mike Evans, University of Leeds, presents: The effects of polydispersity and metastability on colloidal crystallization

Abstract

We have performed large-scale simulations of crystal growth in a system of slightly size-polydisperse particles. Our results show that polydispersity and metastability, both ubiquitous in soft matter, must be considered in tandem if their dynamical effects are to be understood.

This seminar is hosted by Dr Christopher Castleton and Dr Dave Fairhurst

All welcome.
