Defect structure and percolation in the packing of bidispersed particles on a sphere

Mascioli, Andrew M.

In this work, we study packings of bidispersed particles on spherical surfaces. The literature tells us that in the case of a uniform monodisperse packing, curvature necessitates a minimum number of defects to form. In the low bidispersity regime, the initial crystalline order is disrupted leading to an overall disordered packing. On the other hand in the high bidispersity regime, commensurate pac... read more
