ISSUES TO ADDRESS. .. How do atoms assemble into solid structures? (for now, focus on metals ) How does the density of a material depend on its structure? When do material properties vary with the sample (i.e., part) orientation? Isotropy and anisotropy CHAPTER 3: CRYSTAL STRUCTURES & PROPERTIES Why study crystal structures? Properties of some materials are dependent on crystal structures. Mg (density 1.74 g/cc) and beryllium (density 1.85 g/cc) have HCP-Hexagonal Closed Packed crystal structure and they are brittle. Gold (density 19.32 g/cc) and silver (density 10.49 g/cc) have FCC- Face Centered Cubic crystal structure and they are ductile.

Chapter 3- 4 tend to be densely packed. have several reasons for dense packing: - 1. Typically, only one element is present, so all atomic radii are same. - 2. Metallic bonding is not-directional. (the magnitude of the bond is equal in all directions around an atom) - 3. Nearest neighbor distances tend to be small in order to lower bond energy. have the simplest crystal structures. We will look at three such structures. .. METALLIC CRYSTALS

Crystal structure and Lattice Atoms are assumed as hard spheres. Picture shows many atoms stacked in orderly manner. Crystal structure is the manner in which atoms/ions/molecules are spatially arranged. Sometimes term ‘lattice’ is used in the context of crystal structure. Lattice is 3D array of points coinciding with atom positions.

CONCEPT OF UNIT CELL Small repeat entities are called unit cells. You can build entire crystal structure using unit cells. Thus unit cells are basic building blocks in crystal structure. Hard Sphere Unit Cell Representation Reduced Sphere Unit cell

Chapter 3- 5 Rare due to poor packing Close-packed directions are cube edges. Only Po-Polonium has this structure Coordination Number = 6 (number of nearest neighbor atoms) (Courtesy P.M. Anderson) SIMPLE CUBIC STRUCTURE (SC) a R=0.5a Unit Cell (Hard Spheres) Eight Unit Cells in Reduced Sphere Notation
