Order and Jamming on Curved Surfaces

Burke, Christopher.

Abstract: Geometric frustration occurs when a physical system's preferred ordering (e.g. spherical particles packing in a hexagonal lattice) is incompatible with the system's geometry. An example of this occurs in arrested relaxation in Pickering emulsions. Pickering emulsions are emulsions (e.g. mixtures of oil and water) with colloidal particles mixed in. The particles tend to lie at an oil-wate... read more
