Basic Elements of Crystallography

Front Cover
Pan Stanford Publishing, Jun 30, 2010 - Science - 195 pages
"An excellent primer on crystallography - a discipline necessary for everyone concerned with the solid state, overarching the fields of materials science, metallurgy, condensed matter physics, micro- and nano-technology. Abundant and clear drawings allow the authors to introduce the concepts of crystal structures and lattices in a very easy way, starting from one dimensional cases and proceeding to all 14 Bravais lattices. The book expounds on the close packed monoatomic structures as well as several important binary compounds. The ideas of the reciprocal lattice are explained in a straightforward manner. The strengths of this book are the excellent images and a large number of tabulated lattice parameters. This textbook is definitely a good starting point for learning crystallography or teaching introductory courses. I would certainly recommend this to my students, while professionals may also enjoy reading it." Boris I. Yakobson Rice University, USA --
