How microscopic scallops wander (Physical Review Research article by Leiden/Kraft group and colleagues)


All microscopic objects, from enzymes to paint particles, are jittering constantly, bombarded by solvent particles: this is called Brownian motion. How does this motion change when the object is flexible instead of rigid? Ruben Verweij, Pepijn Moerman and colleagues published the first measurements in Physical Review Research.
