However, there is still no fundamental understanding of how metastable solids form and how this is influenced by kinetic factors. Furthermore, the very early stages of crystallization remain vague. We present an experimental study using a binary mixture of colloidal particles as a model. Particle assembly is provoked by centrifugation, and the degree of separation can be adjusted precisely. Between the scenarios of random mixture (glassy state) and complete phase separation, conditions could be realized to facilitate the occurrence of various periodic structures in a single experiment. Some of these structures can only be explained by a dynamic, nonequilibrium and dissipative state. Eventually, the formation of certain metastable lattices can be interpreted as an emergent, systemic phenomenon. Thus, centrifugation can be used for studying the chaos-order transition in complex particle systems.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:creator>Cölfen, Helmut</dc:creator> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2015-10-09T12:08:58Z</dcterms:available> <dc:creator>Polarz, Sebastian</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Chen, Mengdi</dc:creator> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/29"/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="http://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/31954"/> <dcterms:title>Centrifugal Field-Induced Colloidal Assembly : From Chaos to Order</dcterms:title> <dc:contributor>Chen, Mengdi</dc:contributor> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2015-10-09T12:08:58Z</dc:date> <dcterms:issued>2015</dcterms:issued> <dc:contributor>Polarz, Sebastian</dc:contributor> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
