implications for science

The results of this are still being assimilated in terms of their implications for science. For instance the vivianite colour (change) is a rather unexpected quantum mechanical effect which might also have relevance for electrochemical devices like Li-ion batteries. There are aspects related to a high pH sensitivity and unexpected lack of uniformity in the vivianite colour changing phenomenon where it is not at all clear how the pattern develops and there is substantial lack of control over the final pattern that is formed – that is a rather nice result, that we have identified a system that has the propensity to reliably form complex patterns. This I believe is a topic that might lead to novel scientific insight.
