The Possible 7-, 9- and 14-Fold Symmetry Quasicrystals in Soft Matter

  • Tian-You Fan
Part of the Springer Series in Materials Science book series (SSMATERIALS, volume 260)


The possible 7-, 9- and 14-fold symmetry quasicrystals are similar to those of 18-fold symmetry, belong to the second kind of two-dimensional quasicrystals, in which the possible 7- and 14-fold symmetry quasicrystals are more interesting, because the phonons and second phasons are coupled apart from the coupling between the first and second phasons.
