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

Swirlons Under an External force

18. Swirlons Under an External force

With swirlons orbiting a common center of mass, researchers have realized that they operate in different directions, with some moving clockwise and others moving counterclockwise.

Even with that being discovered, they still move with the same velocities while being coherent. This still happens when an external force is applied.

No matter the mass, or the number of particles that are made up to form the swirlon, nothing affects them. When these particles combine to create swirlons, the energy of the particles may waver or transform, but that is all.
