Title:
Virus particle assembly into crystalline domains enabled by the coffee ring effect 
Abstract:
Tobacco mosaic virus particles can be rapidly assembled into 3D-domains by capillary flow-driven alignment at the triple contact-line of an evaporating droplet. Virus particles of 150 Å diameter can be resolved within individual domains at the outer rim of the ``coffee-ring'' type residue by atomic force microscopy. The crystalline domains can also be probed by X-ray microdiffraction techniques. Both techniques reveal that the rod-like virus particles are oriented parallel to the rim. We further...    »
