Figure 8: Schematic figure of a supercooled liquid state below melting temperature. LFS: black pentagons, NLS: grey spheres. Shaded region represents metastable islands with various degrees of crystal-like order, whose characteristic coherence length is ξ. The darker the colour is, the higher the crystal-like order and the higher the local density are [79]. Courtesy Hajime Tanaka.
