Dynamics of individual Brownian rods in a microchannel flow
This article is licensed under aCreative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 3.0 Unported Licence.Andreas Z öttl, Kira Klop, Andrew K Balin, Yongxiang Gao, Julia Yeomans, Dirk G. A. L. Aarts We study the orientational dynamics of heavy silica microrods flowing through a microfluidic channel. Comparing experiments and Brownian dynamics simulations we identify different particle orbits, in particular in-plane tumbling behavior,...
