Description

The ideal glass: More than just vibrations Abstract = The Kauzmann temperature T_K is one of the fundamental temperatures of glass-forming systems. There is convincing experimental evidence that glass-formers have at T_K a singularity in their thermodynamic properties as well as in their dynamics.  Despite the obvious importance of this temperature, nobody has so far been able to study the equilibrium properties of a glass-former close to its Kauzmann T since the experimental glass transition occurs well above T_K, and hence the liquid falls out of equilibrium. Recently a new method has been proposed that allows to probe the equilibrium properties of a glass-former even at its Kauzmann T ...
