We study Escherichia coli chemotaxis behavior in environments with spatially and temporally varying attractant sources by developing a unique microfluidic system. Our measurements reveal a frequency-dependent chemotaxis behavior. At low frequency, the E. coli population oscillates in synchrony with the attractant. In contrast, in fast-changing environments,(More)
We report quantitative measurements of the impact of alloy disorder on the ν = 5/2 fractional quantum Hall state. Alloy disorder is controlled by the aluminum content x in the Al(x)Ga(1-x)As channel of a quantum well. We find that the ν = 5/2 state is suppressed with alloy scattering. To our surprise, in samples with alloy disorder the ν = 5/2 state appears(More)
