This letter presents a study on the stability of the 12-fold symmetry soft-matter quasicrystals from the angle of thermodynamics combining dynamics of the matter. The results are quantitative, which depend upon only the material constants of the novel phase and very simple and intuitive, these material constants can be measured by experiments.

Stability of two-dimensional soft quasicrystals in systems with two length scales.
TLDR
The relative stability of two-dimensional soft quasicrystals in systems with two length scales is examined using a recently developed projection method, demonstrating that, for the Lifshitz-Petrich model, the dodecagonal and decagonal quasICrystals can become stable phases, whereas the octagonal quAsicrystal stays as a metastable phase.

Which Wave Numbers Determine the Thermodynamic Stability of Soft Matter Quasicrystals?
TLDR
This work identifies features in the particle pair interaction potentials that can suppress or encourage density modes with wave numbers associated with one of the regular crystalline orderings that compete with quasicrystals, enabling either the enhancement or suppression of quasICrystals in a generic class of systems.
