ECE 440 Solution Fall 2009 Due: Wednesday, September 2, 2009 1. In this problem, we will be partly using a web-based simulations that are contained within the NanoHUB website (a NSF sponsored education and research resource), which can be found at: https://www.nanohub.org/ . You will need to register at this site (look in upper right hand corner of NanoHUB homepage) in order to access the simulation applets. We will particulary use the applet Crystal Viewer found on the NanoHUB to help you visualize semiconductor crystal structures. Please experiment with this applet and become comfortable visualizing semiconductor crystal structures. Use the mouse to manipulate and rotate the crystal as needed. The link to the applet is https://www.nanohub.org/resources/3741 a) In terms of the lattice constant a, what is the distance between the nearestneighbour atoms in a bcc lattice? an fcc lattice? Verify your results using the applet. BCC: Using the Pythagorean theorem the distance from corner to corner is given by: Hence the distance between 2 nearest atom is: d

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
