Abstract

We perform the extensive Brownian dynamics simulations on the suspensions of the monodisperse magnetic colloidal chains confined in the thin films at several different area fractions. It is shown that the long-time self-diffusion coefficients of the colloidal chains with different chain lengths converge on the single master curve, even though the area fraction of the chains is different. We also show the phase diagram of the suspensions. The value of the melting point depends on not only the number of colloidal particles N z within one chain but also the area fraction σ for the suspensions of the colloidal chains.
