Sound Waves Direct Particles to Self-Assemble, Self-Heal

Monday, June 19, 2017 - 10:42 in Physics & Chemistry

Berkeley Lab scientists have demonstrated how floating particles will assemble and synchronize in response to acoustic waves. Their simple experiment provides a new framework for studying how seemingly lifelike behaviors emerge in response to external forces. The work could help address fundamental questions about energy dissipation and non-equilibrium thermodynamics.
