Disordered many-particle hyperuniform systems are exotic amorphous states of matter that lie between crystal and liquid: They are like perfect crystals in the way they suppress large-scale density fluctuations and yet are like liquids or glasses in that they are statistically isotropic with no Bragg peaks. These exotic states of matter play a vital role in a number of problems across the physical, mathematical as well as biological sciences and, because they are endowed with novel physical… Expand

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.
