Team Udayavani, Jan 11, 2021, 3:14 PM IST

University of Konstanz’s researchers have uncovered a new state of matter, liquid glass, with previously unknown structural elements.

They used a model system involving suspensions of tailor-made ellipsoidal colloids to uncover the state. In liquid glass state, individual particles are able to move yet unable to rotate, a complex behaviour that has not previously been observed in bulk glasses.

According to WION, Researchers recorded temporal development of the 3D positions and orientations for nearly 6,000 ellipsoidal particles using confocal laser scanning microscopy. The study was published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
