A new way to grow large, defect-free quasicrystals has been developed by researchers in the US. Through a combination of experiments and simulations, Ashwin Shahani and colleagues at the University of Michigan showed how clusters of growing quasicrystals can coalesce to create larger structures, provided they are mostly aligned with each other. The results could pave the way for a new wave of interest in the exotic materials.
