Scope of the Program in Ames

Our goal is to understand, and facilitate exploitation of, the special properties of quasicrystals. These properties include (but are not limited to) low thermal and electrical conductivity, high hardness, low friction, and good oxidation resistance. For specific comparisons between some properties of quasicrystals and other materials, click here.
