Book Description :

"Building new materials with structures on the micron and nanoscale presents a grand challenge currently. It requires fine control in the assembly of well-designed building blocks, and understanding of the mechanical, thermodynamic, and opto-electronic properties of the resulting structures. Patchy colloidal particles with sizes from nano to micrometers provide new building blocks for tomorrow's materials owing to the ability to control their valency and thus the architecture of the assembled structures. This thesis presents our experimental observations of multivalent colloidal self-assembly with critical Casimir forces. This solvent-mediated force allows particle interactions to be tuned with temperature and solvent composition, without the addition of any other component. By combining our synthesized multivalent colloidal particles with critical Casimir forces we assemble these building blocks into site-specific superstructures, and then investigate the relation between the particle potential and geometry, and the aggregate morphology by real-space confocal imaging, reciprocal near-field light scattering and Monte Carlo simulations."--Samenvatting auteur.

Book Description :

This thesis discusses: (1) the fabrication of an experimental tool, namely holographic optical tweezers for simultaneously manipulating spatial locations of multiple particles, (2) development of a framework for interpreting hydrodynamic interactions between multiple particles close to a no-slip surface and comparisons of experimental data with predictive modeling results (Stokesian dynamics simulations) (3) investigations of colloidal particle interactions under external AC fields and the intriguing spontaneous pattern formations in the suspension and, (4) the use of an unconventional assemble-stretch technique for creating novel 2D and 3D crystalline arrays of anisotropically shaped particles, from spherical particle templates. By blinking holographic optical traps, we investigate the hydrodynamic interactions in multi-particle ensembles, influenced by a no-slip surface. The measurements are carried out by screening out electrostatic interactions in the suspension. We observe that with increasing proximity with the surface, the effect of particle-particle hydrodynamic interactions on the short-time self-diffusivities is screened. We use the Stokeslet representation of particles and combine it with the method of images to understand the correlated motion of particles within the ensembles. Analysis of the resultant ensemble eigen-modes reveals that even in dilute suspensions, the effective diffusivities decay as the inverse of the separations, over the range of particle-particle separations we experimented with. The relative modes exhibit dominant contributions from close neighboring particles and the collective modes incorporate long-range contributions from all particles in the ensemble. Our analysis also confirms that for larger number of particles in the ensemble, the contributions from particle-particle interactions increase and in concentrated suspensions they over-ride the strong hydrodynamic screening by the wall. We investigate the microstructure of polarizable particles in AC electric fields as a function of field strength and frequency and observe three key features: (1) The order-disorder transition as a function of field strength and frequency exhibits an ordered regime consisting of dipolar chains and crystals between two disordered regimes at low and high field strengths. While the transition to order at low field strengths is consistent with the polarization-induced interactions becoming larger than the thermal energy of the particles, the reentrant disordered regime at high field strengths is marked by large- scale rotating structures; (2) As mentioned, using blinking laser tweezers to characterize the interaction of particle pairs, we demonstrate that particle pair rotation opposite of alignment in the field direction is the microscopic phenomenon driving the observed suspension behavior. The pair particle rotation is observed to decrease with increasing frequency, thus requiring higher field strengths, in agreement with the frequency and field strength dependence of the second order-to-disorder transition; (3) The particle rotation is consistent with a mechanism based on the mutual polarization of particles, and is an effect of the phase lag between the polarization and the applied and mutually induced field. The connection we made between particle interactions and suspension microstructure answers a long-standing debate regarding the mechanism underlying the band structures in experiments employing parallel electrode geometries. Creating ordered crystalline structures from anisotropic particles is a fundamental challenge. To create such structures, either one can direct the assembly of particles from a random dispersion using external fields or, as we will show, they can be created from the controlled deformation of isotropic particle templates. Using an assemble-stretch technique we create 2D and 3D anisotropic particle assemblies from an initial template of close-packed spheres. This method enables the fabrication of anisotropic crystals from particles of any deformable material with a reasonable glass transition temperature, and thus, is a key advantage of the technique. Be- cause the aspect ratios of the particles in the deformed crystal depends solely on the applied mechanical strain, the method offers good control over particle aspect ratios, and can be used to create assemblies from different particle sizes. As long as the original template can be fabricated with long range order, the stretched anisotropic structures will also be ordered over large length scales. We demonstrate that it is also possible to simply align and stack 2D structures to create crystals in three dimensions. The assemble-and-stretch approach shows great promise for ultimately creating structures with complete photonic bandgaps. (Abstract shortened by UMI.).

Book Description :

In this thesis we demonstrate the use of external fields to direct the self assembly of anisotropic particles into controlled microstructure. Directed self-assembly by external electric field has the advantage that it leads to rapid assembly of particles, it is reversible and the interactions can be tuned by controlling the field parameters. However, the polarization mechanism of colloidal particles and its dependence on the properties of the particle and the medium is not well understood. We use optical tweezers to measure the interactions between particles as a function of medium salt concentration and field frequency. We identify the double layer relaxation as the dominant polarization mechanism. This enables us to reinterpret the order-disorder phase diagram, published earlier by Lumsdon and co-workers, and thus predict the electric field required to assemble particles given the size of the particles, the frequency of the field and the type and concentration of the counter-ion in the system. We study the application of external field to anisotropic nanoparticle assembly using zeolite particles. The assembly of disk-shaped zeolite particles is interesting from the perspective of both understanding how anisotropic particles respond in electric field and also to self-assemble a zeolite structure, a material with large number of industrial applications. Similar to spherical particles, the disk shaped particles also form a hexagonal close-packed structure by assembling in a side-to-side fashion with their long axis, the diameter, oriented along the field direction. However, due to the smaller size of particles the field strengths required to assemble these particles are higher than those used in interaction measurements. At high field strengths the particles also form a brush-like structure that grows from the electrode interface towards the bulk suspension. The assembly of particles near the electrode interface occurs due to an interplay between dipolar force and the drag force due to electro-hydrodynamic (EH) flow. In addition to generalizing the dipolar interaction mechanism to anisotropic particles, this work also demonstrates the challenges associated with the use of only electric field to self-assemble particles into a permanent structure. To form an irreversible structure under electric field we develop a combined field and flow directed technique for assembling anisotropic particles and show its application using ellipsoidal titanium dioxide nanoparticles. The colloidal suspension of titanium dioxide particles, confined between glass substrates, is allowed to dry in the presence of electric field. The electric field orients the particles and due to the evaporation of solvent micrometer thick particulate films deposit onto the glass substrate. The microstructure of the film is controlled by tuning the field strength and the field frequency. On varying the field frequency the particles undergo a parallel-random-perpendicular orientation transition with respect to the electric field direction. The optical and the mechanical properties of the film are dependent on the orientation of the deposited particles. This work demonstrates a novel method of assembling anisotropic particles using external fields and controlling the microstructure using field frequency. Although field-assisted convective deposition allows us to control the orientation of the particles, the thickness of the film cannot be precisely controlled and the electrode gap limits the area of the assembled region. Unlike external electric fields, flow fields are more scalable and could be used to deposit particles over a large area. We use a flow coating technique to deposit ellipsoidal titanium dioxide particles on a glass substrate. The film is deposited from a colloidal suspension confined between a fixed blade and a translating substrate. Both the microstructure and the thickness of the film are simultaneously controlled by varying the particle volume fraction in the suspension, the velocity of the substrate and the angle between the blade and the substrate. At volume fractions above the isotropic-nematic transition the particles in the film orient along the coating direction. At volume fractions below the isotropic-nematic transition the particles do not orient along the coating direction. The substrate velocity and the blade angle affect the shear and extensional stresses exerted on the colloidal particles, which determine the orientation of the particles in the deposited film. Thus, flow coating is a rapid and scalable approach for de- positing thin films of nanostructured material consisting of anisotropic particles. (Abstract shortened by UMI.).

Book Description :

Cubes, triangular prisms, nano-acorn, nano-centipedes, nanoshells, nano-whiskers. . . . Now that we can create nanoparticles in a wide variety of shapes and morphologies, comes the next challenge: finding ways to organize this collection of particles into larger and more complex systems. Nanoparticle Assemblies and Superstructures, edited by pioneer of nanoparticle self-organization Nicholas A. Kotov, employs three critical questions to provide a framework of open-ended inquiry: What are the methods of organization of nanocolloids in more complex structures? What kind of structures do we need? What are the new properties appearing in nanocolloid superstructures? Pulling together a collection of contributors unmatched in both their expertise and enthusiasm, Kotov presents what he refers to as a snapshot of nanoassembly work in progress. The first section of this comprehensive volume provides background through an assessment of the current status of nanoparticle assembly development and the requirements for different applications of organized nanomaterials. The middle chapters explore the changes that occur in various properties of individual particles when they are brought together to form agglomerates and simple assemblies. In the final section, a number of top scientists describe various methods for organizing particles in complex nanostructured superstructures. These include techniques involving biological ligands and force fields, as well as methods based on self-organization. This remarkably prescient text upholds Kotov’s belief that the research on organization of nanoparticles and other nanostructures, will most certainly uncover a wealth of “interesting discoveries and surprising phenomena.” Nicholas A. Kotov has received several state, national, and international awards for his research on nanomaterials, including the Mendeleev Stipend, the Humboldt Fellowship, and the CAREER award.

Book Description :

Self-assembly is one of the key concepts in contemporary soft condensed matter. It is an umbrella term which encompasses the various modes of spontaneous organization of micrometer-and submicrometer-sized particles into ordered structures of various degrees of complexity, yet it often relies on remarkably simple interactions and mechanisms. Self-assembly is one of the key principles used by nature to construct living matter, where it frequently takes place in a hierarchical fashion. This book contains the lectures from the Enrico Fermi summer school: Soft Matter Self-assembly, held in Varenna, Italy, in June and July 2015. The primary aim of the school was to cover the most exciting modern aspects of self-assembly in soft condensed matter physics, and to enable Ph.D. students and postdocs to engage with some of the most exciting and current topics in the physics of colloids through a series of mini-courses and seminars hosted by leading figures in the field. Subjects covered include: colloids with directional bonding; pathways of self-organization; self-assembly hydrodynamics; polymer structure and dynamics; liquid-crystal colloid dispersions; and self-organizing nanosystems. The proceedings also include two reprints from Reviews of Modern Physics, and will be of interest to both students and experts in the field.
