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

Swirlons in the Liquid State

23. Swirlons in the Liquid State

In the liquid state of matter, there is a formed uniform density and will then allow all the particles to occupy some of the volumes. When this occurs, we must find the condition when some parts become unstable, and swirlons are created.

Swirlons will emerge due to some local particles that are active and localized. Simply put, swirlons form if there are local forces with their strength exceeding the particle’s critical force. Due to this, a new state is formed.
