Abstract

The collective motion of synthetic active colloids is an emerging area of research in soft matter physics and is important both as a platform for fundamental studies ranging from non-equilibrium statistical mechanics to the basic principles of self-organization, emergent phenomena, and assembly underlying life, as well as applications in biomedicine and metamaterials. The potentially transformative nature of the field over the next decade and beyond is a topic of critical research importance. Electrokinetic active colloids represent an extremely flexible platform for the investigation and modulation of collective behavior in active matter. Here, we review progress in the past five years in electrokinetic active systems and related topics in active matter with important fundamental research and applicative potential to be investigated using electrokinetic systems.
