Rotational Trajectory of a Unit Vector on a Model Molecule

Image courtesy Debenedetti Research GroupRotational trajectory of a unit vector on a model molecule representing the glass-forming substance ortho-terphenyl. This computer simulation illustrates the progressive slowing down of rotational motion upon cooling, which occurs as molecules become trapped in a transient cage of immobile neighbors.
