Theoretical studies of the colloidal domains of phases in coexistence.

Taiwan / Тайвань

A novel means to calculate the domains of colloidal phase diagrams is advanced. It is based on the idea of treating the coexisting subsystems as a composite system. By minimizing the free energy density of the latter, the domains of phase separation can be crosshatched. Further examination of the colloidal free energy landscapes would shed light into the mechanisms underlying phase transition.
