Glasses display a wide array of nonlinear acoustic phenomena at temperatures T ≲ 1 K. This behavior has traditionally been explained by an ensemble of weakly coupled, two-level tunneling states, a theory that is also used to describe the thermodynamic properties of glasses at low temperatures. One of the most striking acoustic signatures in this regime is the existence of phonon echoes, a feature that has been associated with two-level systems with the same formalism as spin echoes in NMR.

Casimir effect between pinned particles in two-dimensional jammed systems.
The existence of Casimir-like forces between two pinned particles immersed in two-dimensional systems near the jamming transition are shown and it is shown that this repulsive force arises due to a clustering of particles with strong contact forces around the perimeter of the pinned particles.
Intermittent turbulence in a many-body system
In natural settings, intermittent dynamics are ubiquitous and often arise from a coupling between external driving and spatial heterogeneities. A well-known example is the generation of transient,
Memory formation in cyclically deformed amorphous solids and sphere assemblies
It is shown that single and multiple memories can be robustly retrieved through these different read protocols and measurements and that shear deformation by a larger amplitude always erases the stored memories.
Nanowire Stretching by Non‐Equilibrium Molecular Dynamics
Non‐equilibrium Molecular Dynamics (NEMD) simulations of a stretched Lennard‐Jones (LJ) model single crystal nanowire with square cross‐section are carried out. The microstructural and mechanical
Memory formation in matter
This paper reviews examples where specific inputs can be stored in condensed-matter systems and then retrieved by appropriate protocols and describes some common principles and questions that emerge from looking for the underlying shared elements in these apparently disparate systems.
Energy transport in glasses.
This work studies d(ω) for a poorly annealed glass and a highly stable glass prepared using the swap Monte Carlo algorithm, which finds that the energy moves diffusively for high frequencies up to a maximum frequency, beyond which the energy stays localized.
