AB - Living cells use phase separation and concentration gradients to organize chemical compartments inspace. Here, we present a theoretical study of droplet dynamics in gradient systems. We derive thecorresponding growth law of droplets andfind that droplets exhibit a drift velocity and positiondependent growth. As a consequence, the dissolution boundary moves through the system, therebysegregating droplets to one end. We show that for steep enough gradients, the ripening leads to atransient arrest of droplet growth that is induced by a narrowing of the droplet size distribution.
