Building new materials with structures on the micron and nanoscale is currently one of science’s greatest challenges. Patchy colloidal particles with sizes from nano to micrometers provide new building blocks for tomorrow’s materials owing to the ability to control their valency and thus the architecture of the assembled structures. In his research, Trúc Anh Nguyễn assembles multivalent colloidal particles into superstructures with reversible control using a critical mechanism known as the Casimir effect.
