Brownian ratchets under geometrical confinement

The effective motion of a Brownian ratchet is rectified also by the geometrical confinement

Collective motion of squirmer suspensions

Snapshots of suspensions of squirmers. The morphologies observed depend on whether they are extensile or contractile.

Viscosity curves for red blood cells under strong confinement a a function of the capillary number

Nanocolloids in blockcopolymer melts

Images of the distribution of nanocolloids in a blockcopolymer for different colloidal sizes and degrees of solubility for one of the components of the blockcopolymers
