Abstract:
Colloidal suspensions comprise of micrometer-sized particles that remain suspended in a fluid by Brownian motion. Their large size, typically a micron, allows for the investigation of dynamics at the single-particle level using relatively simple tabletop experimental techniques. This feature combined with the tunability of particle shape and interactions makes them promising candidates to address a plethora of problems in statistical mechanics and condensed matter. In my talk, I will describe recent results from our group that exploit this versatility of colloidal suspensions to address issues in surface guided growth and the structural glass transition
