Illustrations of self-assembled colloidal structures. (a) Highly ordered regions with hexagonal symmetry extending over assembled from functionalized (patchy) colloidal silica particles. The colloidal structure exhibits a photonic band gap in the visible light range. (b) Regions showing co-existing hexagonal and square symmetry, from [13]. (c, d) Confocal microscope images illustrating highly-ordered self-assembled structures in 'ionic' colloidal crystals of oppositely charged particles assembled from positive (red, ) and negative (green, ) polymethylmethacrylate spheres. (e, f) Electric field induced structures in the same system: stationary bands perpendicular to the field directions (e) and lanes of oppositely moving particles parallel to the field direction, emerging for larger amplitudes of the applied electric field (f).
