Counterclockwise Circular Motion of Bacteria Swimming at the Air-Liquid Interface

Abstract

Flagellar propulsion of swimming Escherichia coli produces circling clockwise motions near planar solid surfaces. Counterclockwise motion was first reported near air-TN medium interfaces, showing that slip at the interface is a key parameter of bacterial swimming.
