In about 10 years we should have three-dimensional maps of the structure of Earth’s interior, from surface to center, with a resolution of a few hundred kilometers, including anisotropy and anelasticity. 
3d Most-Probable All-Atom Structure of Atactic Polystyrene During Glass Formation: A Neutron Total Scattering Study
The deepest and most interesting unsolved problem in soft condensed matter physics is the nature of glass formation, and one of the most difficult things to solve the problem is to directly observe...
Glass physics: Prigogine and Defay say relax
For an important class of liquids, relaxation dynamics are constrained by a surprisingly simple scaling relationship between density and temperature. It seems that thermodynamics holds the key to

The Jamming Transition
In Chap. 2 we presented a rather broad overview of renowned theories about the glass transition. In the last decades, the study of glasses at low temperature has also attracted significant interest,
On the effect of impurities in metallic glass formation
We report atomic-scale characterization of impurity elements in a Pd40Ni40P20 metallic glass by state-of-the-art atom probe tomography combining with transmission electron microscopy. The significant
Molecular Dynamics Simulation of Cage Effect in the Glass Transition of Argon
The glass transition process of argon is studied by molecular dynamics simulations with Lennard-Jones potential. The cage effect appears at about 24 K. The Lindemann length of argon is found to be
