The mechanism of diatom locomotion has been widely researched but still remains a hypothesis. There are several questionable points on the prevailing model proposed by Edgar, and some of the observed phenomena cannot be completely explained by this model. In this paper, we undertook detailed investigations of cell structures, locomotion, secreted mucilage,(More)
The controllable growth of partially aligned monolayer to multilayer micrometer stripes was demonstrated by adjusting the pulling speed in a dip-coating process. The number of molecular layers decreases with the increasing pulling speed. A lower pulling speed yields mixed multilayers (3-9 monolayers). It is noteworthy that pure monolayer and bilayer(More)
