Turing also present at the nanoscale

In the world of single atoms and molecules governed by chaotic fluctuations, is the spontaneous formation of Turing patterns possible -- the same ones that are responsible for the irregular yet periodic shapes of the stripes on zebras' bodies? A team of physicists has for the first time demonstrated that such a process can not only occur, but can also be used for potentially very interesting applications.
