Colloid Physics: 

2D colloids provide a convenient model system for studying defects and order in condensed matter physics. We are developing techniques to study open issues in 2D melting in spherical colloids and 2D glass transition in rod-shaped colloids. 

This project is supported by the National Science Foundation under the grant No. NSF-DMR-2203380 (PI: Ling, Co-PI: Kosterlitz).
