APERIODIC CRYSTALS FROM MODULATED PHASES TO QUASICRYSTALS PDF

Reviews Description This book explains aperiodic crystals, which cannot be described by the classical model of 3-dimensional periodicities. The study of these new types of material necessitates describing them in dimensions larger than three. It describes the physical and mathematical methods to solve and characterize them, and to understand their physical properties. He later moved to the University of Nijmegen, from which he graduated with a PhD in He became a full professor at the University of Utrecht and, in , he moved again to Nijmegen where he spent the rest of his career. He has oriented his research activities to the fields of group theory in physics, crystallography and properties of aperiodic crystals, friction theory and nonlinear dynamics.

He continued his research in the field of resonant scattering for three years at the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory in California. Chapuis has published over research papers on structures and properties of aperiodic crystals and is the author of several textbooks in the field of crystallography.

As an active member of the IUCr, he is editor and co-editor of a number of scientific journals and media, and the chair and member of various committees. He has oriented his research in the field of quasicrystals and complex intermetallic compounds, studying their atomic structure, defects and lattice dynamics using x-ray and neutron scattering techniques, associated with atomic scale modelling and simulations.

His work is conducted through international collaboration with several groups in Europe, Japan and USA. As an active member of the IUCr, he has been chair of the commission on aperiodic crystals and is co-editor of Acta B.

Aperiodic Crystals

In the last decades a new class of solid state matter, called aperiodic crystals, has been found. It is a long range ordered structure, but without lattice periodicity. It is found in a wide range of materials: organic and anorganic compounds, minerals including a substantial portion of the earths crust , and metallic alloys, under various pressures and temperatures. Because of the lack of periodicity the usual techniques for the study of structure and physical properties no longer work, and new techniques have to be developed. This book deals with the characterisation of the structure, the structure determination and the study of the physical properties, especially dynamical and electronic properties of aperiodic crystals. The treatment is based on a description in a space with more dimensions than three, the so-called superspace. This allows us to generalise the standard crystallography and to look differently at the dynamics.
