Pumping and swimming: two faces of phoretic flows

Prelegent: dr Maciej Lisicki

2019-12-19 12:30

Janus particles with the ability to move phoretically in self-generated chemical concentration gradients are model systems for active matter. On the other hand, chemically active surfaces can lead to microscale flow generation, bacoming an effective pumping mechanism in inertia-less small-scale flows. In this talk, I will review briefly both phenomena relating to the same concept of phoretic flow generation. Asymmetry needed for the flow to be initiated can be induced by geometry or by chemical patterning. I will show examples of both ways and some applications in biomimetic systems of fully three-dimensional phoretic swimmers.
