An experimental investigation of linear rheological properties of monodisperse ordered latex dispersions has been carried out. Measurements of the dynamic shear modulus and the dynamic viscosity in the frequency range between 0.04 Hz and 2500 Hz are reported. The volume fraction and the electrolyte concentration were variables in the experiment. The results show that a description of the rheological behaviour with a simple linear phenomenological equation is not possible. The measured dynamic moduli can only be described with a great number of relaxation times.
