The structure of spontaneously formed crystals in the sediments of colloidal hematite (α-Fe2O3) cubes is studied using microradian X-ray diffraction. The hematite cubes possess a superball shape and a permanent magnetic dipole moment, both influencing the self-assembly behaviour and inducing directionality in diffe Directed self-assembly
