Self correlation function S(q,t) of ortho-terphenyl, with mode-coupling fits

Self correlation function S(q,t) of the glass-forming liquid ortho-terphenyl at q=1.2/Angstroem, measured with incoherent neutron scattering at the spectrometers IN5, IN6, and IN13 of the Institut Laue-Langevin. Solid lines are fits with the beta scaling function of mode-coupling theory.
