Important note for all data sets: Some particles may not exist at all times, but the tracking program has identified them as likely the same particle and thus with a continuous identity. However, it is known that occasionally the tracking program makes mistakes with this.

Data on supercooled binary colloids

These data sets were studied in:

The data are in the form (x,y,z,r,t,id). r is the radius in microns (either 1.55 microns or 1.18 microns). t is an integer, to convert to seconds, multiply by the time step listed in the table. (x,y,z) are in microns. Each particle has a unique ID number assigned to it.

In the table, I've listed the volume fraction of each sample: Each of these should be considered as plus or minus 0.010; that is, the third significant digit is not really that significant. In fact, following the considerations discussed in Poon, Weeks, and Royall, there may be an additional systematic error of up to 3%.
