Dan Shechtman, Nobel Prize in Chemistry laureate

29. 10. 2016

You should look around and pay attention to something odd, says Daniel Schetman, professor at Technion, Israeli institute of technology. And he did find something odd. He found quasicrystals and that's why he received the Nobel prize in chemistry in 2011. However, he had to fight for recognition for years, many scientists rejected his discovery. What made him absolutely sure that he was right and they were wrong? How can quasicrystals be used in everyday life and what was the role of magnifying glass at the beginning of his scientific career?
