Supersolidity of glasses

  • A. F. Andreev
Article

Abstract

The supersolidity of glasses is explained as the property of an unusual state of condensed matter. This state is essentially different from both normal and superfluid solid states. The mechanism of the phenomenon is the transfer of the mass by tunneling two-level systems.
