The Dispersal of Swimming Microalgae in Inhomogeneous Viscous Environments

Stehnach, Michael.


  • Swimming cells often live in fluid environments characterized by spatial gradients of rheological properties, including biofilms and mucus layers. In such environments, cells are observed to locally accumulate, a phenomenon which may be driven by several competing effects including asymmetry in the cell propulsion mechanism and variations in the mechanical output power of the cells.
