A new form of glass through molecular entanglement 

January 08, 2020
Physicists at the University of Vienna in collaboration with the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research have discovered a new type of glass formed by long, cyclic molecules. The scientists successfully demonstrated that by making parts of the rings more mobile, the rings become more strongly entangled and the molecular fluid glassifies. The novel “active topological glass” is presented in the latest issue of Nature Communications. [more]
