Dynamical phase transition in periodically sheared colloids

This weeks item is Nature Physics paper Random organization in periodically driven systems by Corte, Golub, Chaikin and Pine. When you consider a dilute suspension of colloidal particles undergoing a periodic driving force – such as shear, at low density … Continue reading
