# Crystallographic Points, Directions, and Planes. ISSUES TO ADDRESS...

• How to define points, directions, planes, as well as linear, planar, and volume densities
– Define basic terms and give examples of each: • Points (atomic positions) • Vectors (defines a particular direction - plane normal ) • Miller Indices (defines a particular plane) • relation to diffraction • 3-index for cubic and 4-index notation for HCP

Points, Directions, and Planes in Terms of Unit Cell Vectors

v c

All periodic unit cells may be described via these vectors and angles, if and only if
• a, b, and c define axes of a 3D coordinate system. • coordinate system is Right-Handed!

v b

v a

But, we can define points, directions and planes with a “triplet” of numbers in units of a, b, and c unit cell vectors . For HCP we need a “quad” of numbers, as we shall see.

POINT Coordinates
To define a point within a unit cell…. Express the coordinates uvw as fractions of unit cell vectors a, b, and c (so that the axes x, y, and z do not have to be orthogonal). pt. coord. pt.

Crystallographic Directions
Procedure: 1. Any line (or vector direction) is specified by 2 points.
• b The first point is, typically, at the origin (000).

2.

Determine length of vector projection in each of 3 axes in units (or fractions) of a, b, and c.

Multiply or divide by a common factor to reduce the lengths to the smallest integer values, u v w. Enclose in square brackets: [u v w]: [110] direction.

v a

5. Designate negative numbers by a bar [ 1 1 0] • Pronounced “bar 1”, “bar 1”, “zero” direction. 6. “Family” of [110] directions is designated as <110>.

DIRECTIONS will help define PLANES (Miller Indices or plane normal ).
