Flock on a Chip
Par Denis Bartolo (ENS Lyon, Dept de physique)

I will show how to motorize colloidal particles capable of sensing the orientation of their neighbors and how to handle them in microfluidic chips. These populations of colloidal rollers display non-equilibrium transitions toward swarming or swirling motion . After characterizing these emergent patterns I will quantitatively describe them by means of an hydrodynamic theory of polar active liquids.
