PhD position: Physics of synthetic microswimmers: hydrodynamic simulations
The swimming motion of micron-size objects, such as bacteria, sperm or colloids, occurs in a regime where friction and viscosity are the dominating effects of the fluid. This is very different from the swimming of meter-scale objects we are used to, where inertia is important. Artificial micrometer-sized swimmers can be synthesized nowadays and used for experiments and applications. This is of industrial relevance, because it opens new routes for the transformation of thermal or chemical energy into mechanical motion.
