Crystal Structure 2 Crystal Planes Within a crystal lattice it is possible to identify sets of equally spaced parallel planes. These are called lattice planes . In the figure density of lattice points on each plane of a set is the same and all lattice points are contained on each set of planes . b a b a The set of planes in 2D lattice.

Crystal Structure 3 Miller Indices Miller Indices are a symbolic vector representation for the orientation of an atomic plane in a crystal lattice and are defined as the reciprocals of the fractional intercepts which the plane makes with the crystallographic axes. To determine Miller indices of a plane, take the following steps; 1) Determine the intercepts of the plane along each of the three crystallographic directions 2) Take the reciprocals of the intercepts 3) If fractions result, multiply each by the denominator of the smallest fraction
