  • Extraordinary new materials named quasicrystals and characterized by noncrystallographic rotational symmetry and quasiperiodic translational properties have attracted scrutiny. Study of quasicrystals may shed light on the most basic notions related to the quantum critical state observed in heavy-fermion metals. We show that the electronic system of some quasicrystals is located at the fermion condensation quantum phase transition without tuning. In that case the quasicrystals possess the… CONTINUE READING
