Article by Primoz Ziherl and coworkers in Nature Materials

In August, T. Dotera, S. Bekku, and P. Ziherl theoretically proposed a new type of 2D quasicrystal with hexagonal rotational symmetry. The new structure is based on the so-called bronze mean, and it may explain some of the recent experimental observations that do not agree with the existing models of layered quasicrystals.
