Speakers: Prof Julia M Yeomans

Active materials, such as bacteria and molecular motors, continuously create energy. These are systems that naturally operate out of thermodynamic equilibrium and hence provide a testing ground for theories of non-equilibrium statistical physics. They also have potential as micro-machines, creating mechanical work from chemical energy and suggesting the first steps towards building an artificial cell, or as swimming micro-robots carrying payloads along blood vessels or through the soil.

Refreshments are served from 6pm on the day of the lecture for a 6.30pm start. While these lectures are free to attend, please register online.
