Example text

The dashed lines are meant to assist the visual orientation inside the figures. 22 Shape of Wigner–Seitz √ cells of the centered tetragonal (ct) lattice for different ratios q = c/a. Here q = 1 and q = 2 represent the bcc and fcc lattice, respectively. The top figures refer to rectangular blocks of a fictitious monoatomic ct crystal illustrating the lattice structure for corresponding ratios q. The ratio q = c/a of the two lattice constants determines the actual lattice type, √ where q = 1 reflects the bcc and q = 2 yields the fcc lattice.

21 compare morphological unit cells (Niggli cells) with WSCs for the bcc- and fcc lattices. Both polygonal WSCs are highly symmetric, which reflects the large number of point symmetry elements of the cubic lattice. This applies also to the WSC of the sc lattice which forms a cube and is identical in shape with the morphological unit cell. A complete set of WSCs for all 14 Bravais lattices can be found in [32, 50]. 20 (a) Morphological unit cell (Niggli cell) and (b) Wigner–Seitz cell of the bcc lattice.

It also includes the corresponding names for mirror symmetry planes and inversion centers. The four different rotation axes can distinguish between the different types of three-dimensional lattices. First, there are lattices that do not possess any rotational axis. They form the most general type of Bravais lattices and will be called triclinic-P. 3 will lead to another triclinic-P lattice, that is, will not create any new lattice type. 23, is the only member of the triclinic crystal system. 23 Morphological unit cell of the triclinic-P lattice with lattice vectors R 1 , R 2 , R 3 and angles α, β, γ labeled accordingly.
