dc.description.abstract The study of liquid polymorphism is at the frontier of fundamental thermodynamics and materials science. Liquid polymorphism occurs when a single material has multiple structurally unique liquid phases. Water was the first substance suggested to exhibit multiple liquid phases, a number of monatomic semiconductors and metals have been found to exhibit similar characteristics since then. A better understanding of the liquid-liquid phase transition is needed to tackle problems in glass sciences, it is also relevant to geophysical studies of the Earth's core and mantle and has applications in nanotechnology.
