Artificial Oscillating Membrane Systems

In this chapter, recent research dealing with the development of artificial oscillating membranes is presented. The research on dynamical and self-regulated systems is of significance to understand the physiochemical phenomena that occur in biological membrane-based oscillating systems. In the course of this chapter, different categories of artificial oscillating membranes are shown and the underlying mechanisms for oscillations are explained. The chapter gives a comprehensive overview of oscillating membrane systems and emphasises the importance of the out-of-equilibrium state and close interplay and feedback of mass transport and driving forces across a membrane and physiochemical processes to generate self-regulated systems.
