quasicrystal (s) (noun), quasicrystals (pl)
A form of solid matter whose atoms are arranged like those of a crystal but assume patterns that do not exactly repeat themselves: In a quasicrystal, the local arrangements of atoms are fixed, and in a regular pattern, but are not periodic throughout the entire material because each cell has a different configuration of cells surrounding it.
