Hyperuniform states of matter are correlated systems that are characterized by an anomalous suppression of long-wavelength (i.e., large-length-scale) density fluctuations compared to those found in garden-variety disordered systems, such as ordinary fluids and amorphous solids. All perfect crystals, perfect quasicrystals and special disordered systems are hyperuniform. Thus, the hyperuniformity concept enables a unified framework to classify and structurally characterize crystals, quasicrystals… Expand
Multifunctional Hyperuniform Cellular Networks: Optimality, Anisotropy and Disorder
Disordered hyperuniform heterogeneous materials are new, exotic amorphous states of matter that behave like crystals in the manner in which they suppress volume-fraction fluctuations at large lengthExpand
Hyperuniform states generated by a critical friction field.
TLDR
This work shows that a vibrated granular layer, at the critical point of the liquid-to-solid transition, displays dynamic hyperuniformity, and shows that the structure factor detects better the emergence of hyperun uniformity, compared to the particle number variance. Expand
Binary mixtures of charged colloids: a potential route to synthesize disordered hyperuniform materials.
TLDR
This work studies the small-wavenumber behavior of the spectral density of binary mixtures of charged colloids in suspension and finds that at dimensionless temperatures below 0.05 and dimensionless inverse screening lengths below 1.0, the disordered systems become effectively hyperuniform. Expand
Methodology to construct large realizations of perfectly hyperuniform disordered packings.
TLDR
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. Expand
Nonequilibrium strongly hyperuniform fluids of circle active particles with large local density fluctuations
TLDR
It is shown that the large local density fluctuations can be explained as a motility-induced microphase separation, while the Fickian diffusion at large length scales and local center-of-mass-conserved noises are responsible for the global hyperuniformity. Expand

TLDR
It is found that the origin of fluidic HU can be understood as the damping of a stochastic harmonic oscillator in q space, which indicates that the suppressed long-wavelength density fluctuation in the hyperuniform fluid can exhibit as either acoustic (resonance) mode or diffusive (overdamped) mode.

Dynamic evolution of hyperuniformity in a driven dissipative colloidal system
TLDR
A comprehensive computational toolbox is developed, enabling real-time characterization of hyperuniformity in real- and reciprocal-spaces together with the evolution of several order metric features, and measurements showing the effect of external perturbations on the spatiotemporal distribution of the particles. Expand
Design of nearly perfect hyperuniform polymeric materials.
TLDR
This work establishes a framework to quantitatively predict the emergence of hyperuniformity in polymeric materials by considering the distribution of localized polymer subregions, instead of considering the whole material, and demonstrates that this highly tunable approach results in arbitrarily small long-range density fluctuations in the liquid state.

Stone–Wales defects preserve hyperuniformity in amorphous two-dimensional networks
Significance We show that the Stone–Wales topological defects preserve hyperuniformity, a recently discovered novel state of many-body systems that suppresses large-scale density fluctuations, inExpand
Hyperuniformity of generalized random organization models.
TLDR
The results suggest that general particle systems subject to random organization can be a robust way to fabricate a wide class of hyperuniform states of matter by tuning the structures via different particle-size and -shape distributions. Expand

TLDR
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.

TLDR
New rigorous criteria that disordered hyperuniform two-phase heterogeneous materials must obey are derived and implications for the design of such novel amorphous materials are explored. Expand
Transport, geometrical, and topological properties of stealthy disordered hyperuniform two-phase systems.
TLDR
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.

Ground states of stealthy hyperuniform potentials: I. Entropically favored configurations.
TLDR
Results show that as the density decreases from the high-density limit, the disordered ground states in the canonical ensemble are characterized by an increasing degree of short-range order and eventually the system undergoes a phase transition to crystalline ground states. Expand
Diagnosing hyperuniformity in two-dimensional, disordered, jammed packings of soft spheres.
TLDR
Using video optical microscopy to study hyperuniformity phenomena in disordered two-dimensional jammed packings of soft spheres and a simple packing reconstruction algorithm that incorporates particle polydispersity to minimize the free volume, simulations show that hyper uniformity in finite-sized samples can be ascertained more accurately in direct space than in reciprocal space.
