Title: Rectifying the thermal Brownian motion of three-dimensional asymmetric objects
Authors: VAN DEN BROEK, Martijn

Publisher: AMER PHYSICAL SOC
Citation: PHYSICAL REVIEW E, 78(1)
Abstract: We extend the analysis of a thermal Brownian motor reported by Van den Broeck [Phys. Rev. Lett. 93, 090601 (2004)] to a three-dimensional configuration. We calculate the friction coefficient, diffusion coefficient, and drift velocity as functions of shape and present estimates based on physically realistic parameter values.
