    • Active matter alters the growth dynamics of coffee rings 

      Callegari, Agnese; Andaç, Tuğba; Weigmann, Pascal; Velu, Sabareesh K. P.; Pinçe, Erçağ; Volpe, G.; Volpe, Giovanni (OSA, 2018)
      We show that bacterial mobility starts playing a major role in determining the growth dynamics of the edge of drying droplets, as the droplet evaporation rate slows down.
    • Active matter alters the growth dynamics of coffee rings 

      Andaç, Tuğba; Weigmann, Pascal; Velu, Sabareesh K. P.; Pinçe, Erçağ; Volpe, G.; Volpe, Giovanni; Callegar, Agnese (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2019)
      How particles are deposited at the edge of evaporating droplets, i.e. the coffee ring effect, plays a crucial role in phenomena as diverse as thin-film deposition, self-assembly, and biofilm formation. Recently, microorganisms ...
    • Controlling active brownian particles in complex settings 

      Velu, Sabareesh K. P.; Pinçe, Erçağ; Callegari, Agnese; Elahi, Parviz; Gigan, S.; Volpe, Giovanni; Volpe, G. (OSA, 2017)
      We show active Brownian particles (passive Brownian particles in a bacterial bath) switches between two long-term behaviors, i.e. gathering and dispersal of individuals, in response to the statistical properties of the ...
    • Graphene based high frequency electronics 

      Pinçe, Erçağ (Bilkent University, 2010)
      Recent advances in chemical vapor deposition of graphene on large area substrates stimulate a significant research effort in order to search for new applications of graphene in the field of unusual electronics such as ...
    • Manipulation and control of collective behavior in active matter systems 

      Pinçe, Erçağ (Bilkent University, 2016-10)
      Active matter systems consist of active constituents that transform energy into directed motion in a non-equilibrium setting. The interaction of active agents with each other and with their environment results in collective ...
