Generalized single-parameter aging tests and their application to glycerol

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


Physical aging of glycerol following temperature jumps is studied by dielectric spectroscopy at temperatures just below the glass transition temperature. The data are analyzed using two single-parameter aging tests developed by Hecksher et al. [J. Chem. Phys. 142, 241103 (2015)]. We generalize these tests to include jumps ending at different temperatures. Moreover, four times larger jumps than previously are studied. The single-parameter aging tests are here for the first time applied to a hydrogen-bonded liquid. We conclude that glycerol obeys single-parameter aging to a good approximation.
