05/04/2024

Imamaddin Amiraslanov, Head of the Crystallography Laboratory at the Institute of Physics of the Ministry of Science and Education, Doctor of Physical Sciences, Professor, and State Prize laureate made presentation titled "Crystals, Quasicrystals, and Applied Folk Art".

The speaker discussed fundamental discoveries in the field of crystallography, the quasicrystalline state of matter, which is distinct from crystalline and amorphous states. Imamaddin Amiraslanov mentioned that the Nobel Prize was awarded for the discovery of quasicrystals and emphasized the importance of Penrose networks and the concept of "moltile" (Einstein) in solving crystallographic problems.

A comparative analysis of crystallographic aspects in folk art was conducted during the workshop, particularly focusing on geometric ornamentation in medieval Eastern art. Additionally, new artworks in the style of "tessellation" were showcased.

The workshop concluded with a question-and-answer session for participants.
