2. Discovery of Soft-Matter Quasicrystals and Their Properties

Authors : Tian-You Fan, Wenge Yang, Hui Cheng, Xiao-Hong Sun

Published in: Generalized Dynamics of Soft-Matter Quasicrystals

Publisher: Springer Nature Singapore

Abstract

Quasicrystals have long-range orientational order but no translational symmetry. As a consequence, sharp diffraction spots can occur but are unable to be described by 230 crystallographic space groups in both real and reciprocal spaces. There are three types of quasicrystals: one-, two- and three-dimensional quasicrystals. In one-dimensional quasicrystals, the quasiperiodic arrangement of atoms is along one direction, while the plane perpendicular to which has a regular two-dimensional periodic arrangement.
