### Crystal structures & Packing Fraction

1. 1. CRYSTAL“A crystal is a solid in which atoms are arranged insome regular repetition pattern in all directions.”“Aggregation of molecules with a definite internalstructure and the external form of a solid enclosedby symmetrically arranged plane faces.” STRUCTURES “Structure of anything is defined as the framework of its body.”
2. 2. Crystal = Lattice+BaseMotif or basis: Typically an atom or a group of atoms associated witheach lattice point. Lattice  The underlying periodicity of the crystal Basis  Entity associated with each lattice points Lattice Crystal Translationally periodic Translationally periodic arrangement of points. arrangement of motifs.
3. 3. Crystal = Lattice (Where to repeat) + Motif (What to repeat) Crystal a = Lattice a + Motif Note: all parts of the motif do not sit on the lattice a point 2
4. 4. Let us construct the crystal considered before starting with aninfinite array of points spaced a/2 apartPut arrow marks pointing up and down alternately on the points:What we get is a crystal of lattice parameter „a‟ and not „a/2‟!And the motifis: +
5. 5. A strict 1D crystal = 1D lattice + 1D motif The only kind of 1D motif is a line segment. An unit cell is a representative unit of the structure (finite part of a infinite structure) .  Which when repeated gives the whole structure.Lattice + Motif =Crystal
6. 6.  2D crystal = 2D lattice + 2D motif Lattice +  Motifb  a

8. 8.  3D crystal = 3D lattice + 3D motifs CRYSTAL OR SPACE LATTICE  It is defined as an array of points in 3 dimensions in which every point has surroundings identical to every other point in array. According to BRAVAIS there are 14 possible types of space lattice in 7 basic crystal system
9. 9. a = b= c = = = 90º • Simple Cubic (P) - SC • Body Centred Cubic (I) – BCC • Face Centred Cubic (F) - FCC Elements with Cubic structure → SC: F, O BCC: Cr, Fe, Nb, K, W FCC: Al, Ar, Pb, Ni, Ge
10. 10. SIMPLE CUBIC STRUCTURE• Cubic unit cell is 3D repeat unit• Rare (only Po has this structure) • Coordination No. = 6 (# nearest neighbors)

12. 12. BODY CENTERED CUBIC STRUCTURE • Coordination No. = 8 (# nearest neighbors)
13. 13. Unit cell c ontains: 1 + 8 x 1/8 = 2 atoms/unit cell R Adapted from a Fig. 3.2, Callister 6e.• APF for a body-centered cubic structure = 3/8 = 0.68
14. 14. FACE CENTERED CUBIC STRUCTURE Atoms are arranged at the corners and center of each cube face of the cell. ◦ Atoms are assumed to touch along face diagonals
15. 15. • Coordination No. = 12 (# nearest neighbors)
16. 16. Unit cell c ontains: 6 x 1/2 + 8 x 1/8 = 4 atoms/unit cell a• APF for a body-centered cubic structure = /(3 2) = 0.74

18. 18. Ideally, c/a = 1.633 for close packingHowever, in most metals, c/a ratio deviates from this valu
