Abstract

Gravity can influence the formation of highly ordered structures from monodisperse polymer colloid systems, i.e. crystallization. These effects are particularly significant in the formation of alloy type crystals from bimodal dispersions. In this situation the use of ''time-average' gravity is beneficial for the formation of mixed crystals.
