In the case that c a = 2 , the crystal structure is FCC. Note that this condition is obtained by stretching the crystal in the z- direction. The Bain transformation is the path by which BCC converts to FCC through and elongation along an 001 direction. As the crystal is stretched along ⎡001⎤ , for example, the crystal...
