Abstract:Rectification current in overdamped ratchets can be easily controlled by applying two driving signals and tuning either their relative phase or their frequency ratio. The interplay of the two inputs generates intriguing transport mechanisms that can be implemented to optimize shuttling and separation of particles in a variety of physical and technological applications.
