By crystal structure, we mean the regular (or not)
arrangement of the atoms.
We can talk about planes of
atoms (which are rows in this

For the FACE CENTERED CUBIC lattice, we have to define the three lattice
vectors so that they fully account for the atoms at the face centers.

We found in the preceeding chapters that the atoms in a
crystalline solid were located at the lattice points (and on the sites
of the basis for that lattice). We also found the electrons were
attracted to isolated atoms by the Coulomb pot
In the preceding few chapters, we have primarily discussed the crystal properties
and the energy bands of the semiconductors. There, it was pointed out that, at low
temperatures, the valence band was completely full, and the conduct
