The range and nature of effective interactions in hard-sphere solids

Author affiliations

Abstract

Colloidal systems observed in video microscopy are often analysed using the displacements correlation matrix of particle positions. In non-thermal systems, the inverse of this matrix can be interpreted as a pair-interaction potential between particles. If the system is thermally agitated, however, only an effective interaction is accessible from the correlation matrix. We show how this effective interaction differs from the non-thermal case by comparing with high-statistics numerical data from hard-sphere crystals.
