While this rule is most commonly applied to electronic circuits, it also applies to other transport phenomena such as the flow of colloids or nanoparticles through channels containing multiple obstacles, as long as these obstacles are sufficiently far apart. Here we explore the breakdown of this additivity for fluids of repulsive colloids driven over two energetic barriers in a microchannel, using real-space microscopy experiments, particle-resolved simulations, and dynamical density functional theory. If the barrier separation is comparable to the particle correlation length, the resistance is highly non-additive, such that the resistance added by the second barrier can be significantly higher or lower than that of the first. Surprisingly, in some cases the second barrier can even add a negative resistance, such that two identical barriers are easier to cross than a single one. We explain this counterintuitive observation in terms of the structuring of particles trapped between the barriers.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/41"/> <dc:contributor>Erbe, Artur</dc:contributor> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2021-02-26T12:52:52Z</dcterms:available> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/41"/> <dc:contributor>Löwen, Hartmut</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Zimmermann, Urs</dc:creator> <dcterms:title>Negative resistance for colloids driven over two barriers in a microchannel</dcterms:title> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2021-02-26T12:52:52Z</dc:date> <dc:contributor>Leiderer, Paul</dc:contributor> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/53025"/> <dc:creator>Leiderer, Paul</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Zimmermann, Urs</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Kreuter, Christian</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Smallenburg, Frank</dc:contributor> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
