Abstract: The kinetics and the corresponding "atomic" processes of nucleation, growth and defect formation are simulated by alternating electric field controlled colloidal crystallization. Such a system allows us not only to visualize some "atomic" details of nucleation, step dynamics, roughening transition, defect dynamics, but also for the first time to verify quantitatively the previous models published to describe the above processes. Based on the studies, some new knowledge on the initial stage of nucleation, multi step crystallization, etc., was generated. As the colloidal crystallization system displays the phase behaviors similar to normal crystalline materials, and the crystallization condition can be controlled easily and precisely, it can be foreseen that this approach will become a powerful tool to study the science and technology of crystallization. © 2010 American Institute of Physics.
