Das, Chinmay and Chaudhuri, Pinaki and Sood, AK and Krishnamurthy, HR (2001) Laser-induced freezing in 2-d colloids. In: Current Science, 80 (8). pp. 959-971.
Dielectric colloid particles prefer occupying the intensity maxima of an applied stationary interference pattern of laser beams. A 2-d system of colloidal liquid freezes to form a triangular lattice structure when the external laser modulation is in 1-d and the period of the intensity maxima is commensurate to that of the triangular lattice. In this article we review our recent simulation results on this phenomenon of laser-induced freezing.
