Shape, Form and Architecture in the Crystalline World
The architecture of crystalline solids has a particular aesthetic appeal, in view of the ordered regularity and symmetric arrangements of the atoms and molecules within such structures, and their analogies to architectural features in the world around us. However, exploring the nature of crystalline materials beyond such superficial analogies reveals a fascinating world of intricacy, complexity, dynamic change and surprising behaviour.
The lecture will take a wandering journey through the world of crystalline materials, highlighting a range of structural concepts of contemporary interest and the powerful experimental techniques that are yielding deeper and deeper insights into the secrets of this fascinating world.
