ABACUS: Test for Crystal Viewer Tool
05 Aug 2010 | Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck
The objective of this test is to give an idea to a self-learning 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...
AIDA: A tool for exhaustive enumeration of solutions to the quantized Frank-Bilby equation
08 Jan 2018 | | Contributor(s):: Ali Sangghaleh, Michael J. Demkowicz
We present a tool called Arrangement of Interface Dislocation Arrays (AIDA) for enumerating all dislocation networks that satisfy the quantized Frank-Bilby equation for any interface between cubic crystals with a single-atom basis, i.e. FCC/FCC, BCC/BCC, and FCC/BCC interfaces. The set of...
08 Jun 2010 | | Contributor(s):: David K. Ferry, Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck
In mineralogy and crystallography, a crystal structure is a unique arrangement of atoms in a crystal. A crystal structure is composed of a basis, a set of atoms arranged in a particular way, and a lattice. The basis is located upon the points of a lattice spanned by lattice vectors, which is an...
Crystal Structures - Packing Efficiency Exercise
15 Jun 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck
Consider the most efficient way of packing together equal-sized spheres and stacking close-packed 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...

nanoHUB is an online compilation of tools for simulations. Equipped with 3-D simulations and a capability to solve very complex calculations, nanoHUB provides its users worldwide with various tools to help them finish their assignments. One of the tools available is called a Crystal Viewer Tool,...
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...

Exercise: Crystal Lattices
out of 5 stars
29 Jul 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck
This exercise helps the student better understand various types of crystal lattices, in particular diamond and zinc-blende and also helps in better understanding of the miller indicies. The results to some of these problems can be easily arrived at by using the crystal viewer...

Illinois Physics 498: Introduction to Biological Physics
07 Apr 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Paul R Selvin
We will apply simple yet powerfulideas of physics to gain some understanding of biology. (What is theinertia of a bacteria and how does this affect its behavior?) We willbegin with atoms, move to molecules, then macromolecules, then cells,and finally whole systems. For example, how do we see?...

Modern X-ray Scattering Methods for Nanoscale Materials Analysis
15 Oct 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Richard J. Matyi
Since its discovery by von Laue in 1912, X-ray diffraction has become an indispensable tool for structure determinations in the physical and biological sciences. X-rays are characterized by high energies and by wavelengths that are commensurate with nanometer-sized structures – unlike optical...
