The International Year of Crystallography 2014 commemorates not only the centennial of X-ray diffraction, which allowed the detailed study of crystalline material, but also the 400th anniversary of Kepler’s observation in 1611 of the symmetrical form of ice crystals, which began the wider study of the role of symmetry in matter. The United Nations has delegated the task of organizing IYCr2014 to the International Union of Crystallography and UNESCO.

Did you know…
* 45 scientists have been awarded the Nobel Prize over the past century for work that is either directly or indirectly related to crystallography.
* After 100 years of development, X-ray crystallography has become the leading technique for studying the atomic structure and related properties of materials.
* Crystallography underpins the development of practically all new materials, from everyday products like computer memory cards to flat television screens, cars and aeroplane components.
