    Not sure , you'll have to do more research on this topic yourself , just google the topic

    I gave you one site , there are many more

    But what I learned from the interview , is that , it is possible for computers to be run by light instead of electrons

    Therefore of course they would run much faster

    Quasicrystal is a structure that is ordered but not periodic, so they have a patterns throughout but that does not repeat overall. The first such crystal was found in Russia: Al(63)Cu(24)Fe(13).

    Yes, a 3 - space instantiation of a quasiperiodic plane tiling, A.K.A. "Penrose Tilings". The base diamond pattern set falls out in 2 space if you attempt to tile the plane with pentagons. There are forbidden placements.
