Nature’s engines: active matter

Abstract:
Active materials, bacteria, molecular motors, and self-propelled colloids, continuously transform chemical energy from the environment to mechanical work. Dense active matter, from layers of cells to flocks of birds, self-assembles into intricate patterns. Nature’s engines are complex and efficient, and we would like to exploit her ideas to fabricate nano-machines.
