Meet The Swirlon – A New State of Active Matter Discovered By Physicists

The Computer Simulated Particle Testing

16. The Computer Simulated Particle Testing

Nikolai and his colleagues decided to do some more tests in order to explain this further. They used a computer that could simulate the particles that self-propelled and observed how swirlon clouds formed out of these conditions.

They first realized that this active matter acts very differently from that of passive matter. For example, a liquid can turn into a gas and still leave the liquid behind, but in this case of active matter, it was one phase. They discovered that there was no potential for a state change.
