Here, the colloids self-organize into a density spike pattern, which resembles a shock wave and propagates over long distances, almost without dispersing. The underlying mechanism involves a synchronization of the colloids with the light-field, so that particles see the same intensity gradient each time the light-pattern is switched on, but no gradient in between (for example). This creates pulsating transport whose strength and direction can be controlled via the flashing protocol and the self-propulsion speed of the colloids. Our results might be useful for drug delivery applications and can be used to segregate active colloids by their speed.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:creator>Liebchen, Benno</dc:creator> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2019-06-14T13:43:15Z</dcterms:available> <dc:creator>Bechinger, Clemens</dc:creator> <dc:creator>ten Hagen, Borge</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Liebchen, Benno</dc:contributor> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:contributor>ten Hagen, Borge</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Lozano, Celia</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Bechinger, Clemens</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Löwen, Hartmut</dc:creator> <dcterms:title>Propagating density spikes in light-powered motility-ratchets</dcterms:title> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2019-06-14T13:43:15Z</dc:date> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
