From penrose tilings to the trinity test: the extraordinary story of the discovery of quasicrystals in nature
Prof. Luca Bindi
University of Florence
Jeudi 03/02/2022, 13:00-14:01

Séminaire organisé par l'ECA

Quasicrystals are exotic forms of matter with symmetries that were once thought to be mathematically impossible. The first known examples were synthesized in the laboratory over 35 years ago, but could Nature have beaten us to the punch? This talk will describe the decades-long search to answer this question, resulting in one of the strangest scientific stories you are ever likely to hear.
