Self-assembly occurs at many scales, from molecules forming micelles to starts forming galaxies. Arthur Newton focuses on systems on the colloidal length scale, where the size of a particle is between a nanometer and a micrometer. He investigates the self-assembly of laboratory-made colloidal particles that form supracolloidal structures in a capillary and making the link to proteins forming complexes or virus shells.
