2nd International School on Aperiodic Crystals

07 Apr 2013 - 12 Apr 2013 - University of Bayreuth, Germany

Bookmark and Share

Aperiodic crystals are crystalline materials without translational symmetry. They encompass all kinds of materials, including minerals, organic and inorganic compounds, the elements, alloys, ferroelectrics, and proteins. The three types of aperiodic order are incommensurately modulated structures, incommensurate composite crystals and quasicrystals.

A series of lectures by experts in the field of aperiodic crystals will present the basic features of the superspace approach to structures and symmetry as well as to the use of these methods in structural analysis, understanding physical properties and a crystal-chemical interpretation of aperiodic crystals.
Separate tutorials will be offered, where participants can practice the various steps of structural analysis of incommensurately modulated structures or quasicrystals.
 Target Audience
The school will be of interest for students and scientists working in the fields of chemistry, material science, solid state physics or crystallography. The second school on aperiodic crystals provides an overview of aperiodic order in crystalline materials. The tutorials offer the possibility to acquire a working knowledge of the techniques of structural analysis.
