タイトル：Various motions of a single microswimmer
Microswimmer means a self-propelled micro particle in viscous fluid from an artificial one to a
microorganism. The some microswimmers have interesting characteristics not only as the
collective dynamics, but also as the single motion. We observed two types of the microswimmer,
a self-propelled water-in-oil droplet and a microorganism, and found a nontrivial phenomenon in
each single motion.
In this seminar, I talk about those experimental results, which are the oscillation depended on the
size of the droplet and the hydrodynamic interactions of the microorganism in a microchannel.
