Collective behaviour of self-propelled elliptical particles — •Ashreya Jayaram, Andreas Fischer, and Thomas Speck — Institute of Physics, Johannes Gutenberg-University Mainz, Germany

Ensembles of anisotropic self-propelled particles exhibit a rich variety of emergent phases. A combination of short-ranged excluded volume interactions, which induce inter-particle forces and torques, and self-propulsion determines the resulting macroscopic structure. Starting from a point in parameter-space which displays motility-induced phase separation (MIPS) for isotropic particles, we systematically increase the aspect ratio of the constituent ellipses. On doing so, first, MIPS breaks down paving way to a spatially homogeneous state comprising polar domains. Secondly, at sufficiently large aspect ratios, particles aggregate into polar bands. We rationalize these observations from simulations by extracting two effective parameters, viz., the force imbalance coefficient and the coupling to the local polarization, that enter the mean-field description of the system.
