The glass transition is a long-standing challenge of condensed matter physics. One of the problems is that no significant change in the global structure seems to arise upon vitrification [1]. Recent studies however have recovered the old idea of Frank according to which geometric motifs which minimise the local free energy, so-called locally favoured structures (LFS), would grow in correlation with the slow regions of the glass and thus play an important role in the transition [2]. Among the key insights is the identification of a non-equilibrium phase transition in trajectory space, which implies phase coexistence between a slow phase rich in LFS and the normal supercooled liquid. Here we present a study of a polydisperse hard-sphere model glassformer and its LFS properties upon crystallization [3] and vitrification. We combine our numerical simulations with experimental observations that support the picture of the non-equilibrium phase transition in trajectory space.
