Synthesis and applications of anisotropic colloidal dimers
Nowadays, anisotropic particles have attracted a lot of attention due to their wide applications in optical display, emulsion stabilization, biomedical imaging, and active materials, and drug delivery. However, methods to produce anisotropic particles with precise tunability, large quantity, high monodispersity, and low cost are still elusive. This challenge also limits the scope of studies of those particles in both scientific research and practical applications. This thesis focuses on a special class of anisotropic particles - colloidal dimers. We have successfully developed a series of bulk ...
