A fowl find: Scientists stunned to discover a new state of matter - in a chicken's EYE

    Disordered hyperuniformity is an arrangement of particles that allows material to behave like both a crystal and a liquid
    Could lead to new types of light sensor

A new state of matter has been discovered in the eye of a chicken. Never before seen in biology, 'disordered hyperuniformity' is an arrangement of particles that allows material to behave like both a crystal and a liquid.

Along with eggs, soup and rubber toys the list of the humble rooster's most lasting legacies may eventually include optics that can transmit light with the efficiency of a crystal and the flexibility of a liquid.

Pretty interesting..   Sounds like it might become useful ?



  " Materials in this state are like crystals in the way they keep the density of particles consistent across large spatial distances


But these systems are also like liquids because they have the same physical properties in all directions.


Researchers say this may be the first time disordered hyperuniformity has been observed in a biological system.


Previously it had only been seen in physical systems like liquid helium and simple plasmas.

:tu:  ha no worries. When I copy/paste from webpages I have a notepad open, pasting it there removes any formatting, then I just copy it back and paste

There's an easier way, clicking the pink and white eraser in the posting features, (right above the I between the B and the U ) will return all highlighted text to forum defaults.

I was reading this yesterday, near started the topic as well, fascinating stuff,


What I find somewhat confusing is this line:

Previously it had only been seen in physical systems like liquid helium and simple plasmas.

So is it a new state of matter or not?

Things are what they are. - Me Reality can't be debunked. That's the beauty of it. - Capeo If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants. - Sir Isaac Newton Let me repeat the lesson learned from the Sturrock scientific review panel: Pack up your old data and forget it. Ufology needs new data, new cases, new rigorous and scientific methodologies if it hopes ever to get out of its pit. - Ed Stewart Youtube is the last refuge of the ignorant and is more often used for disinformation than genuine research.  There is a REASON for PEER REVIEW... - Chrlzs Nothing is inexplicable, just unexplained. - Dr Who

I thought you were playing some sort of optical game to go with the theme of the thread :blush:

      Me too   ..  this line also confused me ..   Researchers say this may be the first time disordered hyperuniformity has been observed in a biological system.

     But it's still interesting..
