Fluid and crystalline phases of colloidal membranes. a Schematic of a fluid colloidal membrane. b Schematic of a polycrystalline colloidal membrane assembled with more than one nucleation center. Yellow rods highlight the domain walls. c Differential interference contrast (DIC) image of a fluid colloidal membrane at 20 mg ml−1 PEG concentration. Scale bar, 10 μm. d DIC image of solid colloidal membrane at 24 mg ml−1 PEG concentration. Scale bar, 10 μm
