Hyperuniformity characterizes a state of matter for which (scaled) density fluctuations diminish towards zero at the largest length scales. However, the task of determining whether or not an image of an experimental system is hyperuniform is experimentally challenging due to finite-resolution, noise, and sample-size effects that influence characterization measurements. Here we explore these issues, employing video optical microscopy to study hyperuniformity phenomena in disordered two…

Methodology to construct large realizations of perfectly hyperuniform disordered packings.

It is proved that the constructed packings with a polydispersity in size are perfectly hyperuniform in the infinite-sample-size limit, regardless of particle shapes, positions, and numbers per cell.

Disordered hyperuniformity in two-dimensional amorphous silica

It is shown via large-scale density functional theory calculations that DHU leads to almost complete closure of the electronic bandgap compared to the crystalline counterpart, making the material effectively a metal, in contrast to the conventional wisdom that disorder generally diminishes electronic transport.

Transport, geometrical, and topological properties of stealthy disordered hyperuniform two-phase systems.

As the extent of short-range order increases, stealthy disordered two-phase media can attain nearly maximal effective diffusion coefficients over a broad range of volume fractions while also maintaining isotropy, and therefore may have practical applications in situations where ease of transport is desirable.

It is shown that there exist many-particle ground-state configurations in which directional hyperuniformity imparts exotic anisotropic physical properties to these states of matter, which could have technological relevance for manipulating light and sound waves in ways heretofore not thought possible.
