# Elastically driven, intermittent microscopic dynamic in soft solids

Posted in EDG News

Read our work on elastically induced stress fluctuations which may lead to intermittent microscopic dynamics and scale-free distributions of particle displacements in soft solids. We find that this is the origin of the *compressed* exponential dynamics reported in experiments.

Emanuela will give a keynote talk on *Aging in tenuous soft solids: Stretched and compressed exponential dynamics *at the 90th ACS Colloid & Surface Science Symposium.
