Design and characterization of electrons in a fractal geometry
https://www.nature.com/articles/s4156...
"Here, we show how arrays of artificial atoms can be defined by controlled positioning of CO molecules on a Cu (111) surface2,3,4, and how these sites couple to form electronic Sierpiński fractals."

Electrons in 1.58 dimensions? What the frac!
https://www.uu.nl/en/news/electrons-i...
“These behaviours give rise to different possibilities for technological applications and electronic systems. But what happens if electrons live in 1.58 dimensions – and what does it actually mean to live in 1.58 dimensions?”

How Fractals Work
https://science.howstuffworks.com/mat...
“Unconventional 20th century mathematician Benoit Mandelbrot created the term fractal from the Latin word fractus (meaning irregular or fragmented) in 1975. These irregular and fragmented shapes are all around us.”

What Is A Fractal (and what are they good for)?

“Fractals are complex, never-ending patterns created by repeating mathematical equations. Yuliya, a undergrad in Math at MIT, delves into their mysterious properties and how they can be found in technology and nature.”
