Particle shape effects in colloidal crystals and colloidal liquid crystals: Small-angle X-ray scattering studies with microradian resolution

Abstract
Small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) is an indispensable tool in structural investigations of self-assembled colloidal crystals and colloidal liquid crystals. This paper reviews recent studies of the particle shape effects on the crystal structure as revealed by SAXS. Rod-like, plate-like, biaxial board-like as well as cubic-like shapes are discussed. Since relatively large, (sub)micron particles are often used in these studies, we describe the principles of the microradian X-ray diffraction technique that allows detailed characterisation of the periodic order including the determination of the intrinsic width of the Bragg peaks.
