FIG. 3.

(a) Frequency dependence of the orientational order parameter under an AEF. Also shown are the optical images of a perfectly oriented colloidal crystal (left inset, ) and a roughly oriented colloidal crystal (right inset, ), assembled at and for , respectively. (b) Variation of and nucleation rate in the bulk fluid phase with frequency for PS particles.

Image of FIG. 4.
