Make way for mathematical matter:But Baas's more complicated hyperstructures have radically different topologies from anything yet seen in nature. If groups of particles can be made to bond in this way, they would create matter with previously unseen properties, Baas reckons. "When you go to a higher level, something completely new happens mathematically - and I would suspect it does in the real world too," he says.
Baas has teamed up with Ned Seeman of New York University in New York City to figure out how to build the hyperstructures.
