adjective

Physics
  • See quasicrystal

    • ‘We designate this phase as a quasicrystalline phase, L q.’
    • ‘But because the liquid and quasicrystal phases have similar order - and hence a smaller - the quasicrystalline phase has the lower barrier and will solidify first.’
    • ‘The experimentalists created one new quasicrystalline phase after another, while the theoreticians developed mathematical systems for describing their symmetry in three dimensions.’
    • ‘Using this method, 2D quasicrystalline LH2 liposomes were obtained.’
    • ‘Thermal studies showed that the gel phase subsequently relaxes into the quasicrystalline phase in an exothermic transition.’
