Zweidimensionale Quasikristall-Struktur aus Fullerenen mit zwölfzähliger Symmetrie (Ausschnitt)
Quasicrystals Made of Fullerenes
Jülich, 22 May 2017 – For about 35 years now, researchers have been fascinated by a new class of materials – quasicrystals, the discovery of which was marked by a Nobel Prize in 2011. For a long time, they were only found in ternary alloys. They were subsequently found in other systems. Scientists at Forschungszentrum Jülich have now discovered another class of quasicrystals and by using computer simulations they have explained the reasons for the special arrangement of the molecules.
