Transport of Brownian particles in a deformable tube
AbstractDirected transport of Brownian particles in a deformable two-dimensional tube is investigated in the presence of asymmetric unbiased fluctuations. It is found that the current can be enhanced by choosing appropriate noise intensity and deformation. There exists a value of deformation at which the current takes its maximum. For small deformable parameter, transport is dominated by noise intensity, and for very large deformable parameter, transport is dominated by deformation. The competition between the deformation and the asymmetric driving forces will induce rich phenomena in transport.
