Abstract:The unique and new optical, electrical, and magnetic properties of colloidal superstructures as opposed to the bulk characteristics of the constituent materials is attracting the attention of an increasing number of both fundamental scientists and technology-oriented industry. The colloid size used in the assembled structures varies over approximately 3 orders of magnitude and is closely related to the specific application. For photonic band gap materials, the particle size is of the same order of magnitude as the wavelength of light, while for magnetic applications, such as ultrahigh density storage devices, the particle radius is in the low-nanometer range. A combination of the aforementioned physical properties of colloidal matter introduces even more exciting fields of research. Electron transport through monolayers of magnetic nanocrystals or tunable photonic band gap materials, both controlled by applying a magnetic field, are only two examples of the many possibilities.
