Anisotropic super-attenuation of capillary waves on driven glass interfaces.
Phys. Rev. Lett. 119, Art N° 235501.

Metrological atomic force microscopy measurements are performed on the silica glass interfaces of photonic band-gap fibers and hollow capillaries. The freezing of attenuated out-of-equilibrium capillary waves during the drawing process is shown to result in a reduced surface roughness. The roughness attenuation with respect to the expected thermodynamical limit is determined to vary with the drawing stress following a power law. A striking anisotropic character of the height correlation is observed : glass surfaces thus retain a structural record of the direction of the flow to which the liquid was submitted.
