• The structure of supercooled water was elucidated.
  • Like ice, supercooled water (LDL) can be almost uniquely partitioned into quasi-polyhedra (vitrite).
  • By taking statistics of polyhedra, we can discuss the differences in structure in liquid water.
  • There are conditions under which polyhedra can be adjacent to each other. Therefore, there is order in supercooled water, which is an aggregate of polyhedra.
  • The codes to detect cycles and polyhedra are available at GitHub github:cycless

  • 過冷却水の構造を解明した。
  • 過冷却水(LDL)は氷と同様、多面体(vitrite)にほぼ一意的に分割できる。
  • 多面体の統計をとることで、液体の中の構造の違いを議論できる。
  • 多面体同士が隣接できる条件がある。そのために、多面体の集合体である過冷却水には秩序がある。
