Giant molecules or tiny crystals?

Nature Materials has a News and Views article by Ian Robinson titled “Coherent diffraction: Giant molecules or tiny crystals?”, which reviews recent coherent electron diffraction results by Huang et al. featured here earlier. One of the interesting points made in this mini-review is the phase diagram on the left showing a transition from bulk cubic crystal to decahedral and icosahedral structures, including quasi-molten and liquid phases.
