Nature Communications   10 4235   Sep 2019   [Refereed]
Ever since the discovery of quasicrystals, periodic approximants of these aperiodic structures constitute a very useful experimental and theoretical device. Characterized by packing motifs typical for quasicrystals arranged in large unit cells, th...

Communications Chemistry   1 92   Dec 2018   [Refereed]
Self-sorting, in which multiple components selectively assemble themselves by recognising self from others, is an attractive approach to produce supramolecular assemblies with controlled structures. Lock-and-key type complementary physical interac...

Nature Materials   16 987-992   Oct 2017   [Refereed]
The most striking feature of conventional quasicrystals is their non-traditional symmetry characterized by icosahedral, dodecagonal, decagonal or octagonal axes. The symmetry and the aperiodicity of these materials stem from an irrational ratio of...

Regular structures of equal spheres on the triply periodic minimal surfaces known as primitive (P), gyroid (G) and diamond (D) surfaces are enumerated as obtained through Monte Carlo simulations of hard spheres undergoing the Alder transition. Rem...

The phase sequence of many polymeric nanocolloidal particles of core-shell architecture is very different from that seen in classical hard colloids, and the differences must invariably be related to particle softness. Here we discuss the T = 0 pha...

Project Year: Apr 2013 - Mar 2016    Investigator(s): Tomonari Dotera
On a flat surface the hexagonal arrangement is a ubiquitous regular arrangement arising from dense packing, space division, or interactions between particles. What is regular arrangement when a surface is curved? On a sphere, this question was fir...

JSPS: 科学研究費 基盤研究(C)
Project Year: Apr 2010 - Mar 2013    Investigator(s): Tomonari Dotera
Alder's discovery in 1957 that attractive interactions are notnecessary for the formation of crystals caused a great sensation at that time. Thisstudy showed that several (10-fold, 12-fold and 18-fold) quasicrystals were obtainedfrom the simple ha...
