Self-assembly and magnetically induced phase transition of three-dimensional colloidal photonic crystals

Author affiliations

Abstract

Charged superparamagnetic colloidal Fe3O4@SiO2 core−shell particles were chosen as model dipolar soft spheres to study their crystallization and magnetically induced phase transition in suspensions. The 3D colloidal crystals feature excellent magnetically responsive photonic properties with strong diffraction, fast response and wide tunability.
