Long-range order in materials can be aperiodic. Quasi-periodic lattices are mathematically derived from cross sections of objects that are periodically arranged in a higher dimensional space. Experimental investigations of these structures require the specification of more parameters than for classical crystallography. Neutron diffraction, with the special technique of contrast variation, allows a reasonable approach to this problem.
