Material Sciences and Engineering, MatE271 Material Sciences and Engineering MatE271 Week 2 3 Crystal Structure and Periodicity ° Crystalline Materials atoms are in an ordered 3-D periodic array Single crystal or polycrystalline solids ( metals, ceramics, semiconductors, some polymers ) ° Amorphous Materials short range order ( glasses, many polymers ) ° Intermediates Material Sciences and Engineering MatE271 Week 2 4 Crystal Structure and Periodicity Lattice - a 3-D array of positions in space. A geometric framework on which to hang atoms Unit Cell - the smallest repeat unit which defines the crystal structure 2-D 3-D 2-D Note - In these cases, there is one atom centered on each lattice site

### 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.
