Recently, it has been recognized that colloids are also useful for the investigation of systems comprised of only a few particles. We study the melting behaviour of a finite number (N < 30) of paramagnetic colloidal spheres (b = 4.5 mm) in 2D circular cavities. By applying a magnetic field, B, the interaction strength between the particles is varied. At high B, i.e. strong dipole interaction, the particles are arranged in a highly ordered shell-like structure. With decreasing B we observe a loss of angular order between adjacent shells. Upon further reduction of the external field, however, different scenarios are observed. For cavities with hard-wall confinement potentials. In both cases the system melts completely for small magnetic fields. terms-of-use Structure and dynamics of two-dimensional colloidal systems in circular cavities application/pdf Bechinger, Clemens
