Prof. Daniel Shechtman Wins Nobel Prize in Chemistry

  • Hits: 13378


Professor Shechtman, a professor of materials science at Technion-Israel Institute of Technology in Haifa, Israel, a professor at Iowa State University, and a researcher at the United States Department of Energy’s Ames Laboratory, was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for discovering quasicrystals, a material in which icosahedral symmetry in combination with long-range orientational order are present.

Contrary to the previous belief that atoms were packed inside crystals in without five fold symmetry patterns, Shechtman showed that the atoms in a crystal could be packed in a pattern unlike all other materials reported to that time. The Barcelona Nanocluster ( is starting a new scientific collaboration with the Technion, specifically with RBNI Nanotechnology Institute and three colaborative scientific projects have been approved and will start in November 2011
