Acoustically propelled nano- and microparticles: From fundamentals to applications — •Raphael Wittkowski — Institut für Theoretische Physik, Center for Soft Nanoscience, Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster, 48149 Münster, Germany
Among the existing types of artificial active colloidal particles, acoustically propelled nano- and microparticles have a particularly high potential for future applications in fields like medicine and materials science. However, despite intensive research on this type of motile particles in recent years, the understanding of their properties is still very limited. A reason for the limited understanding is that the previous research has mostly been experimental and that it is difficult to study the dependence of certain system parameters on the propulsion of the particles in experiments since the parameters can often not be varied independently of the other parameters and in ranges of reasonable size. In this talk, I will give an overview about our theoretical investigation of the properties of acoustically propelled nano- and microparticles and the challenges that remain for future research.
