When atomic arrangement is repeated in a perfect way throughout the entire sample All unit cells interlock in the same way and have same orientation Single crystals exist in nature and can be produced ( the environment has to be carefully controlled) Application in electronics microcircuits: single crystals of silicon Single Crystals diamond single crystals for abrasives --turbine blades

When it is composed of a collection of many small crystals ( or grains) The crystallographic orientations of these crystals (grains) are random When two grains meet; there is a some atomic mismatch (grain boundary) Polycrystalline Materials Grain boundary

Unformatted text preview: direction • Anisotropy in crystalline materials is a function of the symmetry of the crystal structure ( less symmetry ------ more anisotropy) • Usually the magnitude of a measured property represents an average of directional values Anisotropy Noncrystalline (amorphous) Solids: The atoms are not systematically and regularly arranged. Noncrystalline Crystalline Noncrystalline (amorphous) Solids: Whether a solid is crystalline or amorphous depends how the random structure in liquid state can transform to a n ordered state during solidification. Rapid cooling (during solidification) increase the possibly of noncrystalline formations (little time is allowed for the atoms for ordering process). Metals-----normally----------crystalline Ceramic-----------------------crystalline & amorphous Polymers----normally--------noncrystalline or semicrystalline...
