Active transport in a channel: stabilisation by flow or thermodynamics

Abstract:

Recent experiments on active materials, such as dense bacterial suspensions and microtubule–kinesin motor mixtures, show a promising potential for achieving self-sustained flows. However, to develop active microfluidics it is necessary to understand the behaviour of active systems confined to channels. Therefore here we use continuum simulations to investigate the behaviour of active fluids in a two-dimensional channel. Motivated by the fact that most experimental systems show no ordering in ...
