Quasicrystal diffraction pattern

  1. Dec 6, 2011 #1
    hey all.

    i was wondering whats the diffrance between quasicrystal diffraction pattern and normal crystals (single and multiple)..

    where can i find some info about the diffrences?

    thanks ,

    The X ray diffraction pattern will show peaks for both quasi crystals and crystals due to rotational symmetry But quasi crystals do not posses translational symmetry and crystals do.
