SPLW01 - Building a bridge between non-equilibrium statistical physics and biology

Inspired by recent experiments that combine a microtubule-based active fluid with phase separating fluid mixtures, we have used numerical and analytical methods to explore how active stresses and associated flows modify liquid-liquid phase separation and the properties of the resulting liquid interfaces. Experiments and theory have revealed a wealth of intriguing phenomena, including activity suppressed and arrested phase separation, giant interfacial fluctuation, traveling interfacial waves, and activity controlled wetting transitions.
