Article highlighted in Nature Nanotechnology!

Our recent Nano Letters article was mentioned alongside another beautiful paper on molecular quasicrystals in the Research Highlights editorial of the journal Nature Nanotechnology.  You can read about our paper below.

The other paper uses a molecule (ferrocenecarboxylic acid) that agglomerates in pentagonal clusters on a gold surface.  This kind of thing has happened before, but in the new study the pentagonal collections can further agglomerate into extended aperiodic 2-dimensional layers.
