Phase Behavior of Charged Magnetic Nanoplatelets — •Margaret Rosenberg1 and Sofia Kantorovich1,2 — 1Department of Physics, University of Vienna, Austria — 22Department of Mathematical Physics, Ural Federal University, Russia
Recent decades have seen the emergence of a new branch of science, magnetic soft matter, fueled by the advances in synthesis techniques, which have also made a wide variety of anisotropic magnetic colloidal nanoparticles available. Colloidal anisometry can be used as an effective control parameter to tune both self-assembly scenarios and thermodynamic, rheological and phase behavior of dipolar (magnetic) soft matter. For instance, magnetic nanoplatelets can form macroscopic ferromagnetic phases at room temperature. Although the phase behavior of a system hard-core platelets is well known, the influence of the magnetic dipole moment and electrostatic repulsion on suspensions of magnetic platelets is not yet fully understood. We use MD simulations to recreate such a system. The colloidal particles are modelled by charged soft spheres, with a central dipole possessing a magnetic moment of a constant length, permanently oriented perpendicular to the platelet surface. In order to investigate the self-assembly and structural properties of the platelets, we vary the amplitude of an applied magnetic field and the magnetic dipole. We analyze at which electrostatic conditions the system exhibits self-assembly or/and field alignment, based on RDFs, structure factors parallel and perpendicular to the field and extensive cluster analysis.
