- The existing three-year grant pertaining to ``The control of microstructures during consolidation and injection molding of colloidal dispersions`` began July 1, 1988 as a continuation of a previous grant. The overall effort seeks to answer fundamental questions relevant to the colloidal processing of submicron particles leading to ceramic materials for structural, electronic, or optical applications. At the outset two distinct projects were envisioned, an exploration of the ultrasonic enhancement of disorder-order transitions and a detailed study of injection molding of very dense dispersions, with each weighted toward experiments but with theoretical components. As the effort evolved the focus shifted in response to the interests of the students attracted to the project, the identification of interesting related problems through technical meetings, and different insights gained during participation in a DOE sponsored workshop. The scope that has emerged encompasses completion of research begun during the first grant period on disorder-order transitions occurring during sedimentation, the consolidation of flocculated dispersions via filtration, and the assembly of nanometer- sized particle into dense packings.
