Out-of-equilibrium behavior of colloidal particles under AC electric fields
Starting from more than a decade ago, the assembly of colloidal particles under electric fields becomes a burgeoning topic. It offers a versatile platform for creating ordered metamaterials and manufacturing micro-/nano-devices. While interacting with the electric field, anisotropic particles exhibit unique behaviors due to asymmetric properties. Significant advances have been made in the manipulation and assembly of anisotropic particles, but fabricating novel structures in a controlled fashion remains an enduring challenge. This thesis primarily focuses on investigating the out-of-equilibrium ...
