How to design an icosahedral quasicrystal through directional bonding

Abstract:

Icosahedral quasicrystals (IQCs) are materials that exhibit long-range order but lack periodicity in any direction. Although IQCs were the first reported quasicrystals1, they have been experimentally observed only in metallic alloys2, not in other materials. By contrast, quasicrystals with other symmetries (particularly dodecagonal) have now been found in several soft-matter systems3,4,5. Here we introduce a class of IQCs built from model patchy colloids that could be realized experimentally ...
