EFFECTS OF APERIODICITY AND FRUSTRATION ON THE MAGNETIC PROPERTIES OF ARTIFICIAL QUASICRYSTALS

Barry Farmer
Quasicrystals have been shown to exhibit physical properties that are dramatically different from their periodic counterparts. A limited number of magnetic quasicrystals have been fabricated and measured, and they do not exhibit long-range magnetic order, which is in direct conflict with simulations that indicate such a state should be accessible. This dissertation adopts a metamaterials approach in which artificial quasicrystals are fabricated and studied with the specific goal of identifying how aperiodicity affects magnetic long-range...
