Active colloids and polymer translocation

Abstract:

This thesis considers two areas of research in non-equilibrium soft matter at the mesoscale.

In the first part we introduce active colloids in the context of active matter and focus on the particular case of phoretic colloids. The general theory of phoresis is presented along with an expression for the phoretic velocity of a colloid and its rotational diffusion in two and three dimensions. We introduce a model for thermally active colloids that absorb light and emit heat and propel ...
