Polyhedra and Crystal Structures

  • Chung Chieh
Chapter

Abstract

I have long been interested in searching for interesting relationships between polyhedra and crystal structures, especially with the application of polyhedra as units for crystal structures. Crystallography uses geometry as a foundation. As a crystal scientist, I am interested in understanding how and why certain crystal structures are built the way they are, particularly from a geometric viewpoint. I am also constantly searching for relationships among the various crystal structures.
