Abstract

Three sets of experiments on suspensions of "hard-sphere" colloids are described. Suspensions of equal-sized particles exhibit the hard-sphere freezing and glass transitions. Mixtures of spheres of two different sizes can from the ordered binary crystals $AB_2$ and $AB_1_3$. The addition of non-adsorbing polymer to a one-component suspension leads, through the depletion mechanism, to a range of phase beahviour which includes colloidal gas, liquid, crystal and gel.
