Abstract

Structures of Metals and Ceramics

Goals

  • Define basic terms and give examples of each:
    • Lattice
    • Basis Atoms (Decorations or Motifs)
    • Crystal Structure
    • Unit Cell
    • Coordination Numbers
  • Describe hard-sphere packing and identify cell symmetry
    • Crystals density: the mass per volume (e.g. g/cm3)
    • Linear Density: the number of atoms per unit length (e.g. cm-1)
    • Planar Densities: the number of atoms per unit area (e.g. cm-2)

Learning Objective

  • Know and utilize definitions to describe structure and defects in various solid phases (crystal structures)
  • Compute densities for close-packed structures
  • Identify Symmetry of Cells
  • Specify directions and planes for crystals and be able to relate to characterization experiments
