Quiz 07 - Crystal Structures - Part 1: Mat E 273
The reduced-sphere depiction of the diamond cubic (DC) unit cell
is provided below.
Note that bonds
the cube are colored to highlight the tetrahedral
coordination associated with
The dotted lines merely show the cubic symmetry that this packing
scheme also features, but these are not indicating covalent bonds.
The radius of atoms that pack in DC fashion are related to the lattice
parameter by the relation:
What is the linear packing factor (LPF) of <110> directions in DC ?
