    • Experimental investigation of critical Casimir forces in binary liquid mixtures by blinking optical tweezers 

      Magazzu, Alessandro; Schmidt, F.; Callegari, Agnese; Gambassi, A.; Dietrich, S.; Volpe, Giovanni (OSA, 2017)
      We investigate, for the first time and by blinking optical tweezers, the effects of critical Casimir forces (CCFs) on the free dynamics of a pair of spherical colloidal particles, immersed in binary liquid mixtures upon ...
    • Nonadditivity of critical Casimir forces 

      Callegari, Agnese; Paladugu, Sathyanarayana; Tuna, Yazgan; Barth, Lukas; Dietrich, S.; Gambassi, A.; Volpe, Giovanni (OSA, 2017)
      We provide the first experimental evidence of nonadditivity for critical Casimir forces: the force that two colloidal particles exert together on a third one differs from the sum of the forces they exert separately.
