Created by Dr.Steffen Weber, the Quasicrystals Web site provides an introduction to this relatively new field of crystallography. Although much of the site is highly technical, those interested in related subjects will find exploring the thorough descriptions and interactive Java applets rewarding. The introduction explains what quasicrystals are, their types, experimental techniques, morphology, and more. The Crystal Gallery link provides the most unique offering of the site, which allows users to view three-dimensional crystal shapes, move them through space, and change their appearance. Other links include publications, software, teaching aids, and more.
