Anomalous diffusion of self-align active particle in flow background

  title={Anomalous diffusion of self-align active particle in flow background},
  author={Zenglei Chen and Zhibin Wu},
Active particles (i.e., self-propelled particles or called microswimmers), different from passive Brownian particles, possess more complicated translational and angular dynamics, which can generate a series of anomalous transport phenomena. In this letter, we study the two-dimensional dynamics of a self-propelled pointlike particle with self-aligning property moving in Poiseuille flow. The results show the effective anomalous diffusion coefficient changes sharply with the change of temperature…

Non-Gaussian statistics for the motion of self-propelled Janus particles: experiment versus theory.

The full displacement probability distribution is analyzed, where in agreement with Brownian dynamics simulations either an extremely broadened peak or a pronounced double-peak structure is found, depending on the experimental conditions.

Feedback-controlled active brownian colloids with space-dependent rotational dynamics

Using a magnetic control with a feedback loop, the authors program the dynamics of active Brownian particles by updating their rotational diffusion coefficient depending on their locations, adding a new dimension to the control of active matter.

Coexistence of absolute negative mobility and anomalous diffusion

Using extensive numerical studies we demonstrate that absolute negative mobility of a Brownian particle (i.e. the net motion into the direction opposite to a constant biasing force acting around zero

Self-propelled Janus particles in a ratchet: numerical simulations.

It is proved that ratcheting of Janus particles can be orders of magnitude stronger than for ordinary thermal potential ratchets and thus experimentally accessible and in particular, autonomous pumping of a large mixture of passive particles can been induced by just adding a small fraction of JanUS particles.

Self-driven particles in linear flows and trapped in a harmonic potential.

Analytical expressions for the mean-square displacement of self-driven particles in general linear flows and trapped in a harmonic potential are presented and the effect of trapping and external linear flows on the particles' distribution is elucidated.

Swimming path statistics of an active Brownian particle with time-dependent self-propulsion

Typically, in the description of active Brownian particles, a constant effective propulsion force is assumed, which is then subjected to fluctuations in orientation and translation, leading to a

Active Particles in Complex and Crowded Environments

Differently from passive Brownian particles, active particles, also known as self-propelled Brownian particles or microswimmers and nanoswimmers, are capable of taking up energy from their

Transport and diffusion of underdamped Brownian particles in random potentials

Numerical results for the transport and diffusion of underdamped Brownian particles in one-dimensional disordered potentials are presented and anomalies observed are related to the time dependent probability distributions for the position and velocity of the particles.

Transient anomalous diffusion in periodic systems: ergodicity, symmetry breaking and velocity relaxation

Mechanisms of diffusion anomalies related to ergodicity of the system, symmetry breaking of the periodic potential and ultraslow relaxation of the particle velocity towards its steady state are revealed.

Dynamics of a Self-Propelled Particle in a Harmonic Trap.

It is shown that self-alignment, taking the form of a torque coupling the particle orientation and velocity, is responsible for the emergence of this second dynamical state for which the particle condensates at a finite distance from the trap center.
