ABSTRACT
We demonstrate here a simple physical picture of liquid–glass transition, which qualitatively explains most of the dynamic features from the strong-glass to the fragile-glass limit. We classify the dynamic environment of a molecule into loose and tight cages. Glass transition is then characterized by two transitions: (i) the appearance of tight cages at the crossover temperature Tc and (ii) the disappearance of loose cages at the Vogel–Fulcher temperature T0. We propose that the fragility of glass is strongly correlated with the relative importance of the topological confinement against the anisotropic attractive intermolecular interactions for the formation of tight cage. © 1996 American Institute of Physics.

    We demonstrate that low molar mass discotic liquid crystals can be used for holographic storage. Grating structures are optically induced and stored in the glassy state of the investigated liquid crystal. The material is suitable for multiple storage processes since the stored information can be...

    We measure the viscosity of glycerol by using photon correlation spectroscopy to observe the Brownian motion of small (∼100 nm) polystyrene spheres. By comparing the viscosity measured with different size spheres, we can measure the length scale dependence of the viscosity as the liquid is...
