Defining Vectors for Various Crystal Systems

  • A. G. Jackson


There are several definitions for the basis vectors for face-centered cubic (FCC) structures and lattices. The most common uses the nonprimitive cube with axes A, B, C as shown in Figure 2.1. Conceptually, this set is the easiest to grasp, but the primitive set is essential for finding the allowed reflections.
