Significance Recently, an exotic hyperuniform fluid state was found in a number of nonequilibrium systems, which shows the promise for fabrication of novel lifelike functional materials capable of self-healing and self-adapting. However, the general mechanism of fluidic hyperuniformity (HU) and its fundamental difference from equilibrium fluids remain unclear, which hinders the rational design of nonequilibrium hyperuniform fluids. In this work, we propose a nonequilibrium hard-sphere model of…

Criticality of Exothermic Chemical Reactions: the Role of Reaction Barrier

The critical behavior of exothermic chemical reactions is of not only fundamental significance, but also practical relevance in chemical engineering, fuel engines, and energy industry. Here, using

The Disordered Heterogeneous Universe: Galaxy Distribution and Clustering Across Length Scales

The studies of disordered heterogeneous media and galaxy cosmology share a common goal: ana-lyzing the disordered distribution of particles and/or building blocks at ‘microscales’ to predict physical

Large density fluctuations observed in active systems and hyperuniformity are two seemingly incompatible phenomena. However, the formation of hyperuniform states has been recently predicted in

Local order metrics for two-phase media across length scales

The capacity to devise order metrics to characterize and classify microstructures of multiphase heterogeneous media across length scales is an outstanding but highly challenging task, given the

Reversible to irreversible transitions for cyclically driven particles on periodic obstacle arrays.

We examine the collective dynamics of disks moving through a square array of obstacles under cyclic square wave driving. Below a critical density, we find that the system organizes into a reversible

Learning self-driven collective dynamics with graph networks

A new order parameter is proposed by using machine learning to quantify the synchronization degree of the self-driven collective system from the perspective of the number of clusters, and a powerful model based on the graph network is constructed to determine the long-term evolution of theSelf-driven Collective System from the initial position of the particles, without any manual features.

Dynamic Measure of Hyperuniformity and Nonhyperuniformity in Heterogeneous Media via the Diffusion Spreadability

Time-dependent interphase diffusion processes in multiphase heterogeneous media are ubiquitous phenomena in physics, chemistry and biology. Examples of heterogeneous media include composites,

Chirality transitions in a system of active flat spinners

We study in this work the 2D dynamics of an experimental system of disk-shaped rotors, fluidized by turbulent upflow. Contrary to previous knowledge, our experiments show the same particle chiral

Dynamical clustering interrupts motility-induced phase separation in chiral active Brownian particles

One of the most intriguing phenomena in active matter has been the gas-liquid like motility induced phase separation (MIPS) observed in repulsive active particles. However, experimentally no particle

Noise, Diffusion, and Hyperuniformity.

It is found that the density fluctuations in the active phase decay in the fastest manner possible for a disordered isotropic system, and arguments that the large scale fluctuations are determined by a competition between a noise term which generates fluctuations, and a deterministic term which reduces them are presented.

Local density fluctuations, hyperuniformity, and order metrics.

The purpose of this paper is to characterize certain fundamental aspects of local density fluctuations associated with general point patterns in any space dimension d, and to study the variance in the number of points contained within a regularly shaped window of arbitrary size to further illuminate the understanding of hyperuniform systems.

Designer disordered materials with large, complete photonic band gaps

It is argued that hyperuniformity, combined with uniform local topology and short-range geometric order, can explain how complete photonic band gaps are possible without long-range translational order.
