A crystal is a solid in which atoms are arranged in some regular repetition pattern in alldirections.CRYSTAL SYSTEM3CrystalCrystals (at a given temperature, pressure, and volume) between moleculesand atoms than liquids.

CRYSTAL SYSTEM6Translational Lattice VectorsA lattice translation operation is definedby the displacement of a crystal by acrystal translation vector.Rn = n1 a + n2 bThis is translational symmetry.The vectors a, b are known as latticevectors and (n1, n2) is a pair of integerswhose values depend on the lattice point.PPoint D(n1, n2) = (0,2) 7. *A CRYSTAL STRUCTURE is a periodic arrangement of atomsin the crystal that can be described by a LATTICELattice: A 3D translationally periodic arrangement of points in space.Basis: A group of atoms associated with each lattice point to represent crystalstructure.7 CRYSTAL SYSTEM 8. CRYSTAL SYSTEM8Crystal LatticeBravais Lattice (BL) All atoms are of the same kind All lattice points are equivalentNon-Bravais Lattice (non-BL)Atoms can be of different kind Some lattice points are notequivalentA combination of two or more BLBravais LatticeNon-Bravais Lattice 9. The smallest component of the crystal which when stackedtogether with pure translational repetition reproduces thewhole crystal.9CRYSTAL SYSTEMSabSSSSSSSSSSSSSS 10. Primitive (P) unit cells contain only a single lattice point. Internal (I) unit cell contains an atom in the body center. Face (F) unit cell contains atoms in the all faces of the planes composing the cell.CRYSTAL SYSTEM 10 11. CRYSTAL SYSTEM11Crystal Structure 11 12. The numbers a,b,c specifying the size of a unit cell (in fact,conventional unit cell) are called its lattice constantFor cubic lattice, the lattice constant,Where,=density of the latticen= number of particlesM= molecular weight of the crystalNA =Avogadro number12a=(nM/NA)1/3 13. Symmetry OperationsSymmetry Operation: A symmetry operations is one which leaves thecrystal unchanged such as translation, rotation, reflection or inversion.5-fold symmetry:N-fold axes with n=5 or n>6 does not occur in crystalsAdjacent spaces must be completely filled (no gaps, no overlaps).13 CRYSTAL SYSTEM 14. *Atomic Packing Factor*Atomic Packing Factor (APF) is defined as the volume ofatoms in the unit cell divided by the volume of the unit cell.CRYSTAL SYSTEM 14 15. Close-packed directions are cube edges. Coordination = 6(nearest neighbors)a = 2r,r = a/2Atomic Radius, r=0.5aa 16.

Miller Indices Miller Indices is a group of smallest integers which represent a directionor a plane.To determine Miller indices of a plane, take the following steps:1) Determine the intercepts of the plane along each of the threecrystallographic directions2) Take the reciprocals of the intercepts3) If fractions result, multiply each by the denominator of the smallestfraction. 22.
