FIG. 2.

(Color online) Relationship between deflecting criterion and relative particle size under conditions of , , , , , , . The left curve (solid line with squares) (, ) shows that the particles larger than are deflected from the flow direction along the axis of the lattice while those smaller particles remain in the original direction. For the right curve (solid line) (, ) those larger than will be deflected.
