摘要：Anisotropic soft matter systems,including syntheticcolloidal dispersions and microbial systems, are oftencomposed of relatively simple building blocks but displayextremely rich and complex behavior. Therefore, they havebecome a hot research topic in the field of soft matter inrecent years. In this talk, I will briefly review what we havebeen working on this topic, which mainly focus on the self-organization of anisotropic soft matter systems. In the firsthalf of the talk, using thermal anisotropic colloidal systems asa model, I will discuss our recent progress on understandingthe relationship between the shape of anisotropic colloidsand their self-organized structures. In the second half, as anexample to illustrate the dynamics of self-organization, I willtalk about our studies on bacterial behavior.
