  • Trapping of swimmers in a vortex lattice. [Journal Article]
    Chaos. 2020 Jun; 30(6):063121.Berman SA, Mitchell KA
  • We examine the motion of rigid, ellipsoidal swimmers subjected to a steady vortex flow in two dimensions. Numerical simulations of swimmers in a spatially periodic array of vortices reveal a range of possible behaviors, including trapping inside a single vortex and motility-induced diffusion across many vortices. While the trapping probability vanishes at a sufficiently high swimming speed, we fi…

    J Biomech Eng. 2020 Jun 30 [Online ahead of print]Samaee M, Nelsen N, … Santhanakrishnan A
  • Despite the large number of studies of intraventricular filling dynamics for potential clinical applications, little is known as to how the diastolic vortex ring properties are altered with reduction in internal volume of the cardiac left ventricle (LV). The latter is of particular importance in LV diastolic dysfunction and in congenital diseases such as hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), where L…
  • The Hydrodynamics of Jellyfish Swimming. [Journal Article]
    Ann Rev Mar Sci. 2020 Jun 29 [Online ahead of print]Costello JH, Colin SP, … Sutherland KR
  • Jellyfish have provided insight into important components of animal propulsion, such as suction thrust, passive energy recapture, vortex wall effects, and the rotational mechanics of turning. These traits are critically important to jellyfish because they must propel themselves despite severe limitations on force production imposed by rudimentary cnidarian muscular structures. Consequently, jelly…
  • Replication of left ventricular haemodynamics with a simple planar mitral valve model. [Journal Article]
    Biomed Tech (Berl). 2020 Jun 29 [Online ahead of print]Daub A, Kriegseis J, Frohnapfel B
  • Tools for the numerical prediction of haemodynamics in multi-disciplinary integrated heart simulations have to be based on computational models that can be solved with low computational effort and still provide physiological flow characteristics. In this context the mitral valve model is important since it strongly influences the flow kinematics, especially during the diastolic phase. In contrast…
  • The speed of FtsZ treadmilling is tightly regulated by membrane binding. [Journal Article]
    Sci Rep. 2020 Jun 26; 10(1):10447.García-Soriano DA, Heermann T, … Schwille P
  • As one of the key elements in bacterial cell division, the cytoskeletal protein FtsZ appears to be highly involved in circumferential treadmilling along the inner membrane, yielding circular vortices when transferred to flat membranes. However, it remains unclear how a membrane-targeted protein can produce these dynamics. Here, we dissect the roles of membrane binding, GTPase activity, and the un…

  • Inbreeding depression in one of the last DFTD-free wild populations of Tasmanian devils. [Journal Article]
    PeerJ. 2020; 8:e9220.Gooley RM, Hogg CJ, … Grueber CE
  • Vulnerable species experiencing inbreeding depression are prone to localised extinctions because of their reduced fitness. For Tasmanian devils, the rapid spread of devil facial tumour disease (DFTD) has led to population declines and fragmentation across the species' range. Here we show that one of the few remaining DFTD-free populations of Tasmanian devils is experiencing inbreeding depression.…
  • Little-Parks effect governed by magnetic nanostructures with out-of-plane magnetization. [Journal Article]
    Sci Rep. 2020 Jun 25; 10(1) Ory MC, Rollano V, … Vicent JL
  • Little-Parks effect names the oscillations in the superconducting critical temperature as a function of the magnetic field. This effect is related to the geometry of the sample. In this work, we show that this effect can be enhanced and manipulated by the inclusion of magnetic nanostructures with perpendicular magnetization. These magnetic nanodots generate stray fields with enough strength to pr…

  • Transfer of orbital angular momentum of light to plasmonic excitations in metamaterials. [Journal Article]
    Sci Adv. 2020 Jun; 6(24):eaay1977.Arikawa T, Hiraoka T, … Tanaka K
  • The emergence of the vortex beam with orbital angular momentum (OAM) has provided intriguing possibilities to induce optical transitions beyond the framework of the electric dipole interaction. The uniqueness stems from the OAM transfer from light to material, as demonstrated in electronic transitions in atomic systems. In this study, we report on the OAM transfer to electrons in solid-state syst…

  • Topological thermalization via vortex formation in ultrafast quenches. [Journal Article]
    Phys Rev E. 2020 May; 101(5-1):052113.Tello-Fraile M, Cano A, Donaire M
  • We investigate the thermalization of a two-component scalar field across a second-order phase transition under extremely fast quenches. We find that vortices start developing once the thermal bath sets the control parameter to its final value in the nonsymmetric phase. Specifically, we find that vortices emerge as the fluctuating field relaxes and departs macroscopically from its symmetric config…
