Speakers: Professor Julia Yeomans, University of Oxford

Active materials, such as bacteria and molecular motors, continuously create energy. These are systems that naturally operate out of thermodynamic equilibrium and 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.

Talks start at 18.30 with sandwiches and refreshments available from 18.00. All are welcome and all our talks are free to attend.

Event type: Lecture/Talk
