The objective of this test is to give an idea to a selflearning students or to instructors in the case this test is used in a classroom the level of understanding of this topic when students have gone through the learning material, worked exercises and have completed the assignments and the...

Crystal Viewer Lab Exercise
28 Jun 2010   Contributor(s):: Gerhard Klimeck, Parijat Sengupta, Dragica Vasileska
A central problem in the investigation of material properties involves the examination of the underlying blocks that aggregate to form macroscopic bodies. These underlying blocs own a definite arrangement that is repeated in three dimensions to give the crystal structure. We will try to explore...

Crystal Structures  Packing Efficiency Exercise
15 Jun 2010   Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck
Consider the most efficient way of packing together equalsized spheres and stacking closepacked atomic planes in three dimensions. For example, if plane A lies beneath plane B, there are two possible ways of placing an additional atom on top of layer B. If an additional layer was placed...

Crystal Structures
