Extended Data Figure 5

a, 675 Å × 365 Å image of FcCOOH showing two packed domains with a grain boundary down the centre of the image. The domain at the left of the image has an extended region where pentagons are packed in a periodic (crystalline) fashion, whereas the domain at the right appears quasicrystalline. b, c, The orientation of the pentagons differs between the two domains, as does the chirality; b is taken from the left-hand side of a and c is taken from the right-hand side of a. d, Raw data for Fig. 3, unfiltered and without overlaid pentagons.
