DescriptionPeriodic microphases universally emerge in systems for which short-range inter-particle attraction is frustrated by long-range repulsion. The morphological richness of these phases makes them desirable material targets, but our relatively coarse understanding of even simple models limits our grasp of their assembly. The OSG computing resources will enable us to explore more solutions of the equilibrium phase behavior of a family of similar microscopic microphase formers through specialized Monte Carlo simulations.
