Abstract

NEW Version 2! (10/17/16) Now includes a link to the saved set of simulations, that can be shared instantly with any nanoHUB user.  Other minor edits to update the activity and fix errors.

In this activity, you will use Crystal Viewer to create crystal structures with surfaces that are specific planes, specified by Miller indices, allowing you to visualize and compare the atomic arrangements and numbers of “dangling bonds” on the different surfaces.
