Abstract:

  My talk will focus on the new frontier in soft matter physics -- collective assembly and dynamics of active building blocks, whose properties we can design and regulate experimentally. We introduce the mechanism of energy conversion and communication for individual constituents in both synthetic and biological materials, so the assembly structures and dynamics are distinctly different from and much more exciting than traditional equilibrium assembly. Advances in understanding of such active systems may lead to understanding of complex physical behavior in living cells and designing of biomimetic micro-robotics.
