Swirlonic State – New State of Active Matter

Swirlonic State – New State of Active Matter

Physicists discover a New State of Active Matter, which they have named as Swirlonic State. The new State of Active Matter is comprised of Swirlons. Swirlons are group of Quasiparticles orbiting their common center of mass.

The new discovery is reported by Sci-News on 12th of February 2021

Active Matter

Active Matter is a substance comprised of Active Particle. It demonstrates the ability to exhibit Motion and to perform Mechanical Work at the expense of Metabolic Energy, called Motility.

Active Particles consume energy from the environment and drive themselves far from equilibrium. Living matter provides an uncountable amount of examples of Active Particles Systems. Other examples refer to Robotics, Biomedicine and Social Science.

In the new study, University of Leicester’s Professor Nikolai Brilliantov and colleagues investigated large systems of Active Particles. They observed the formation of conventional gaseous, liquid and solid phases and also a new State of Active Matter called the Swirlonic State.
