DOTERA Tomonari


Professor Dotera specializes in condensed matter physics and does research on soft matter quasicrystals. He has created several complex Archimedean tiling patterns in polymer, and showed evidence of a 'polymeric quasicrystal' tiling for the first time. In 2014, his paper clarifying the origin of unusual non-periodic ordering that defines soft matter quasicrystals was published in Nature.
