Lecture 03: Physical Structures: Cubic systems: bcc, fcc, diamond, zinc-blende Number of atoms Packing fraction Nearest neighbor distances Density Hexagonal systems: Planar: graphene, CNTs
WHY: Packing Fraction The Packing Fraction approximates the amount of lattice volume tied up in bonds. How to calculate the Packing Fraction approximation: Find the fraction of the Unit Cell filled with hard spheres.
