Stochastic resonance (SR) explores how noise in a system is harnessed to synchronize the response of a system to an externally applied force field. Muthukumar’s group have developed an analytical theory for the occurrence of stochastic resonance when a single flexible polymer chain undergoes translocation. They have derived the free energy barrier for the translocation process and the criteria for the emergence of stochastic resonance.
