MEAM Seminar: “Active Colloids in Nematics for Micro-robotics and Reconfigurable Systems”

September 21 at 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM
Zoom – Email MEAM for Link, peterlit@seas.upenn.edu

Active colloids in nematic liquid crystals are exciting vehicles for materials manipulation. Colloid shape, surface chemistry and dynamic displacement can be designed to introduce defects whose non-linear dynamics generate new modalities of motion and interaction. These effects rely on energy conversion mechanisms, in which active colloids with tailored surface functionalization and shape seed defects and […]
