Scattering of biflagellate micro-swimmers from surfaces
(American Physics SocietyPhysical Review E - Statistical, Nonlinear, and Soft Matter Physics, 2017-08-10)
We use a three-bead-spring model to investigate the dynamics of bi-flagellate micro-swimmers near a surface. While the primary dynamics and scattering are governed by geometric-dependent direct contact, the fluid flows ...
Directed collective motion of bacteria under channel confinement
(Institute of PhysicsNew Journal of Physics, 2016-07-01)
Dense suspensions of swimming bacteria are known to exhibit collective behaviour arising from the interplay of steric and hydrodynamic interactions. Unconfined suspensions exhibit transient, recurring vortices and jets, ...
