These patterns are experimentally realized via microcontact printing. Upon approaching the critical demixing point of the solvent, normal and lateral critical Casimir forces generate laterally confining effective potentials for the colloids. We analyze in detail the rich behavior of the spherical colloids close to such substrates. For all patterned substrates we investigated, our measurements of these effective potentials agree with the corresponding theoretical predictions. Since both the directions and the strengths of the critical Casimir forces can be tuned by minute temperature changes, this provides a new mechanism for controlling colloids as model systems, opening encouraging perspectives for applications.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Zvyagolskaya, Olga</dc:contributor> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Tröndle, Matthias</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Vogt, Dominik</dc:creator> <dcterms:title>Trapping colloids near chemical stripes via critical Casimir forces</dcterms:title> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2017-06-26T09:00:30Z</dcterms:available> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2017-06-26T09:00:30Z</dc:date> <dc:creator>Dietrich, Siegfried</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Bechinger, Clemens</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Vogt, Dominik</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Gambassi, Andrea</dc:contributor> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Bechinger, Clemens</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Tröndle, Matthias</dc:creator> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
