EEE 352—Fall 2009 Homework 1 1.1 Determine the number of atoms per unit cell in a (a) face-centered cubic, (b) body-centered cubic, and (c) diamond lattice. (a) The body centered cubic has 8 corner atoms, each of which is shared among 8 unit cells, so this gives 1 atom. Then, there are 6 face atoms, each of which is shared among 2 cells, so this gives 3 atoms. Hence, the FCC has 1+3 = 4 atoms per unit cell. (b) The body-centered cubic has 8 corner atoms, each of which is shared among 8 unit cells, so this gives 1 atom. Then, there is 1 atom at the center of the cube. Hence, the BCC has 1+1 = 2 atoms per unit cell. (c) The diamond lattice has the FCC cell with 2 atoms per position. This gives the additional 4 internal atoms. Hence, the diamond lattice has 2(1+3) = 1+3+4 = 8 atoms per unit cell. 1.2 (a) The lattice constant of GaAs is 5.65 Å. Determine the number of Ga atoms and As atoms per cm 3 . (b) Determine the volume density of germanium atoms in a germanium semiconductor. The lattice constant of germanium is 5.65 Å.

### 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.
