Identification of long-lived clusters and their link to slow dynamics in a model glass former
We study the relationship between local structural ordering and dynamical heterogeneities in a model glass-forming liquid, the Wahnstrom mixture. A novel cluster-based approach is used to detect local energy minimum polyhedral clusters and local crystalline environments. A structure-specific time correlation function is then devised to determine their temporal stability. For our system, the lifetime correlation function for icosahedral clusters decays far slower than for those of...[Show more]
