    • Self-propulsion of active colloids via ion release: theory and experiments 

      Corato, Marco de; Arqué, Xavier; Patiño, Tania; Arroyo Balaguer, Marino; Sanchez Ordoñez, Samuel; Pagonabarraga, Ignacio (American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2020-03-13)
      Article
      Open Access
      We study the self-propulsion of a charged colloidal particle that releases ionic species using theory and experiments. We relax the assumptions of thin Debye length and weak nonequilibrium effects assumed in classical ...
    • Spontaneous polarization and locomotion of an active particle with surface-mobile enzymes 

      Corato, Marco de; Pagonabarraga Mora, Ignacio; Abdelmohsen, Loai K. E. A.; Sanchez Ordoñez, Samuel; Arroyo Balaguer, Marino (2020-12-17)
      Article
      Open Access
      We examine a mechanism of locomotion of active particles whose surface is uniformly coated with mobile enzymes. The enzymes catalyze a reaction that drives phoretic flows but their homogeneous distribution forbids locomotion ...
