Crystal Maker Preparation : Install Crystal Maker, Crystal Diffract, and Single Crystal from Sakai Web Links download Crystal Files from the E-Learning Site: CaF 2 , Phlogopite, Zeolite-X Objectives: Developing a working familiarity with CrystalMaker Be able to represent structures in different ways (polyhedra, etc.) Be able to make structure calculations inside CrystalMaker (e.g., angles, diffraction intensities, etc.) Tasks: I. CaF2: representing, calculations, etc. II. Zeolite-X: representations, calculations, etc. III. Phlogopite: Crystal cuts IV. Build your crystal model structure in crystal maker

Unformatted text preview: Creating several unit cells in translation Taking slices Transform Lattice Plane Edit Position as desired using lattice plane tool (toolbar) Transform Slice Model select an option e.g., (110) of CaF 2 Zeolite X example Load Zeolite-X from E-Leaning site Determine: (a)In which direction are the pores continuously connected? (b)What is the pore diameter and is it a micropore? Phlogopite example Load Phlogopite from E-Leaning site Tasks: (a) Make a small crystal which has K+-rich surface on one side and no K + on the other side. Build your crystal model structure Determine a strategy to build your crystal model structure in crystal maker Create a single unit cell view Create multiple unit cells Use the same color scheme and atom size ratio from your model. How close is the Crystal Maker version to your execution? Make a movie like the Gator Prime example for your structure....
