  2. Visualizing Crystal Structures: An interactive group classroom activity

    11 Nov 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Susan Gentry, Tanya Faltens

    OverviewThis learning activity guides students through the visualization of three-dimensional crystal structures using the software package Ovito. Students work in groups manipulating crystal structures on their personal computers, ranking the planar densities of the (100), (110), and...

  3. How to View Atomic Planes in FCC, NaCl and Simple Cubic Structures using Crystal Viewer

    27 Oct 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Tanya Faltens

    This step by step guide shows how to view atomic planes in some common crystal structures. The crystal structures can be sliced along the planes, and the atomic packing of each plane investigated.  Examples are given for viewing the (110) plane in an FCC metal structure, the (100)...

  5. 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...

  6. Solar Cells Lecture 4: What is Different about Thin-Film Solar Cells?

    29 Aug 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Muhammad A. Alam

    Thin film solar cells promise acceptable efficiency at low cost. This tutorial examines the device physics of thin-film solar cells, which generally require a different type of analysis than crystalline solar cells.

  8. 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 [100], [110] and [111] crystal orientation. The crystal viewer results are in agreement with experimental findings.
