A time-crystal or a space-crystal is basically an open system which shows time translation symmetry breaking (TTSB). The concept was first proposed by the Nobel laureate Frank Wilczek in 2012. He put forward that a time crystal can spontaneously break the symmetry of time translation. They are related to the concepts of zero-point energy and ..
