Abstract

Through hard‐disk simulations and theoretical considerations on the movement of an object that partitions a microtubule filled with small particles, we find that the vibrations typical of thermal equilibrium are reached after a time that increases exponentially with the number of particles involved. The result is a mechanism capable of breaching, on accessible time scales, the ergodic constraints in nano‐scale systems.
