What is Crystal Lattice and Unit Cell?

Crystal Lattice and Unit Cell: Crystal Lattice or Space Lattice: A crystal can be represented by a regular three-dimensional arrangement of points which represent the constituent particles in space. Such a regular array of points in three dimensions is called Crystal Lattice or Space Lattice. It is usually represented by lines and dots which represent the position of constituent particles and known as Lattice points. Each lattice point has the same environment as that of any point in the lattice. Unit Cell: It is possible to select a group of lattice points in a crystal lattice which when repeated again … Continue reading What is Crystal Lattice and Unit Cell?
