Sound Waves in Cell
Thermodynamic couplings at Bio-Interfaces
I am exploring a fundamentally new class of signaling mechanism in the form of interfacial sound pulses in biomembranes. I have previously established an opto-mechanical approach to thermodynamically characterize these pulses in the model system of lipid monolayers at the air/water interface. I am currently working on the nonlinear aspects of these pulses such as self phase modulation and soliton formation which could challenge the current paradigm on Nerve Pulse Propagation and provide a thermodynamic basis for the new signalling mechanism.
