Figure 1: Ellipsoidal colloidal particles on the move. The picture shows how the translational and rotational rearrangements of the particles are related. The ellipsoids that translate the most (outlined in blue) tend to be in the aligned domains. The ellipsoids that rotate the most (red) are in between these domains, in the disorganized regions. Those outlined in black translate and rotate. (Ellipsoids are 3.33 microns long.)
