In addition to the known sequence of structural transitions, a buckling mechanism was recently proposed to maximize the packing fraction F between one and two layers. We here confirm this prediction experimentally and present the first evidence that for more than two layers, buckling, in this case of prism shaped arrays of particles, also takes place. This efficient mechanism may enhance F by up to 4% and dominates in major regions of the phase diagram.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2011-03-24T17:57:40Z</dcterms:available> <dc:creator>Bechinger, Clemens</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Bechinger, Clemens</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Palberg, Thomas</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Leiderer, Paul</dc:contributor> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Neser, Stephan</dc:contributor> <dc:rights>Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 2.0 Generic</dc:rights> <dcterms:title>Finite-size effects on the closest packing of hard spheres</dcterms:title> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>First publ. in: Physical Review Letters 79 (1997), 12, pp. 2348-2351</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <dc:creator>Leiderer, Paul</dc:creator> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
