Transient Moiré rotation patterns in thin colloidal crystals

Author affiliations

Abstract

A high resolution optical microscopy study on low salt charged sphere suspensions settling under gravity reveals the formation of AB-stacked triangular layers via different transient structures. In particular, metastable triangular Moiré rotation patterns (formally corresponding to 1 × 1 Rα super structures) with rotation angles α = 27.8° and α = 38.2° are identified.
