2014 International Year of Crystallography
Wherever you go in the world, there are crystals. In your toothpaste, the eggshells of your breakfast, the liquid crystal display of your alarm clock and in every electronic device. An understanding of how atoms are linked to each other is vital to understand the properties of materials – this area of study is crystallography. Visit the UNESCO website to find out why crystallography is being celebrated.
