Stochastic Analysis of Particle-Pair Transport in Brownian Ratchet Device

Authors: R. Retkute and J.P. Gleeson

Affilation: University College Cork, Ireland

Pages: 26 - 29

Keywords: electrophores, Brownian ratchet, Langevin equation, DNA

The motion of particle pairs in a Brownian ratchet device is studied using Langevin simulations. A Lennard-Jones interaction between the particles is added to a standard spring-bead model. The effects of such interaction upon a recent model for Brownian motors [3] is investigated, with emphasis on the steady-state current.
