Abstract: A two-dimensional assembly of charged colloidal particles induced by an alternating electric field was studied in real space by means of digital video microscopy. Phase transitions occur from a highly ordered colloidal monolayer to an isotropic suspension by changing the field strength or frequency (in the appropriate range). In particular, it is found that the strength-dependent phase transition is an infinite-order phase transition, in contrast with the frequency-dependent phase transition, which is a second-order phase transition. © 2006 The American Physical Society.
