Klotsa, D., Baldwin, K. A., Hill, R. J., Bowley, R., & Swift, M. R. (2015). Propulsion of a two-sphere swimmer. Physical Review Letters, 115(24), doi:10.1103/PhysRevLett.115.248102
We describe experiments and simulations demonstrating the propulsion of a neutrally-buoyant swimmer that consists of a pair of spheres attached by a spring, immersed in a vibrating fluid. The vibration of the fluid induces relative motion of the sphe... Read More about Propulsion of a two-sphere swimmer.
