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...
Crystal Viewer Tool Verification (V 2.3.4)
15 Jun 2010 | Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck
This text verifies the Crystal Viewer Tool by comparing the amount of dangling bonds at the silicon surface for ,  and  crystal orientation. The crystal viewer results are in agreement with experimental findings.
How to Create Atomic Planes in FCC, NaCl and Simple Cubic Structures
27 Oct 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Tanya Faltens
This step by step guide shows how to create atomic planes in some common crystal structures. The crystal structures can be sliced along the planes, and the atomic packing of each plane investigated. Links to saved simulations of each of the planes and structures are included. These instructions...
How to View (100), (110) and (111) Planes in Silicon Using Crystal Viewer 3.0
24 Mar 2017 | | Contributor(s):: Tanya Faltens
This is a step-by-step guide that describes how to draw planes through a structure, and then view the structure, cut by the planes.This exercise may be helpful to understand the different symmetries observed on different planes in Si, and the different oxidation rates for different faces.
Quick and Easy Guide to Carbon Structure Simulations using Crystal Viewer Tool
30 Sep 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Tanya Faltens
These are step-by-step instructions for creating simulations of carbon nanostructures:- buckly ball- carbon nanotubes- graphene sheetsThese instructions will allow teachers to run simulations that students can use along with, or instead of, building 3D models of structures.In NanoDays 2013 at...
Unit Cell Ranking Tasks
15 Oct 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Tanya Faltens
This set of ranking tasks is designed to help the learner work with and understand some of the features of common structures: planar densities, atomic densities, atomic packing factor and coordination numbers of different planes and unit cells. There are four pages-- be sure to click on...
