Charge order seen in superconductor with kagome lattice

In this schematic showing the charge order seen in a superconductor with a kagome lattice -- named for its resemblance to a Japanese woven basket pattern, the distributed colors within the lattice represent the chiral charge ordering detected in experiments.
