Glass forming liquids in a quenched random potential

Author affiliations

Abstract

The response of a model two-dimensional colloidal glass former to an externally imposed spatially random potential, which acts as a quenched disorder, is investigated using numerical simulations, motivated by recent experiments and also mean field predictions. The external potential induces the onset of the glassy dynamics at increasingly smaller field roughness, with increasing packing fraction of the particulate assembly, and the existence of aging processes within the glassy regime is also observed. Furthermore, along the axis of increasing field roughness, the dynamical slowdown is not correlated to the hexatic order within the supercooled regime.
