Volume fraction

Will well-known properties of marginally jammed solids hold at high densities?

Simulation Model

- Cubic box with periodic boundary conditions
- N/2 big andN/2 small frictionlessspheres with mass m
- L/ S= 1.4 avoid crystallization
- Purely repulsive interactions

Harmonic: =2; Hertzian: =5/2

- L-BFGS energy minimization (T = 0); constant pressure ensemble
- Molecular dynamics simulation at constant NPT (T > 0)

Low volume fraction

High volume fraction

potential increases

Potential Field

Interaction field on a slice of 3D packings of spheres

At high volume fractions, interactions merge largely and inhomogeneously

Would it cause any new physics?

Critical Scalings

A crossover divides jamming into

two regimes

Structure Pair Distribution Function g(r)

What we have known for marginally jammed solids?

- First peak of g(r) diverges at Point J
- Second peak splits
- g(r) discontinuous at r = L, g(L+) < g(L)

Structure Pair Distribution Function g(r)

What are new for deeply jammed solids?

- Second peak emerges below r = L
- First peak stops decay with increasing volume fraction
- g(L+) reaches minimum approximately at d

Vibrational Properties Density of States

- Plateau in density of states (DOS) for marginally jammed solids
- No Debye behavior, D() ~ d1, at low frequency
- If fitting low frequency part of DOS by D() ~ , reaches maximumat d
- Double peak structure in DOS for deeply jammed solids
- Maximum frequency increases with volume fraction for deeply jammed
- solids (harmonic interaction) change of effective interaction

Vibrational Properties Quasi-localization

- Low frequency modes are quasi-localized
- Localization at low frequency is the least at d
- High frequency modes are less localized for deeply jammed solids

What we learned from jamming at T = 0?

- A crossover at dseparates deep jamming from marginal jamming
- Many changes concur at d
- States at d have least localized low frequency modes
- Implication: States at dare most stable, i.e. low frequency modes there have
- highest energy barrier Vmax

Glass transition temperature may be maximal at d?

Dynamical Heterogeneity

At constant temperature above glass transition, dynamical heterogeneity

reaches maximum at d

Deep jamming at high density weakens dynamical heterogeneity

Conclusions

- Critical scalings, structure, vibrational properties, and dynamics undergo
- apparent changes at a crossover volume fraction d which thus separates
- marginal jamming from deep jamming
- Is the crossover critical?
- Experimental realizations: charged colloids, star polymers
