Confotronic dynamics of tubular filaments

Abstract : Tubular lattices are ubiquitous in nature and technology. Microtubules and nanotubes of all kinds act as important pillars of biological cells and the man-made nano-world. We show that when prestress is introduced in such structures, localized conformational quasiparticles emerge and govern the collective shape dynamics of the lattice. When coupled via cooperative interactions these quasiparticles form larger-scale quasipolymer superstructures exhibiting collective dynamic modes and giving rise to a hallmark behavior radically different from semiflexible beams.
