Crystalline forms of matter, from ice to diamond, are highly ordered with atoms lined up neatly in rows. Do these crystals have low or high entropy? We are taught that entropy implies disorder, so crystals must have low entropy...or do they? In this talk, find out how some ordered crystal phases of matter can have more entropy than their disordered phases, and why this matters.
