Symmetry operation


Mirror reflection



Symmetry element

Rotation axis Center of inversion Mirror plane Vector


Other (complex) symmetry elements

Rotation Inversion Reflection Translation

Rotation --- Roto-inversion axis xxx Screw axis

Inversion --- --- xxx xxx

Reflection --- --- --- Glide plane

Translation --- --- --- ---


Classification of symmetry elements 1

Proper symmetry elements improper symmetry elements

Rotation axis Inversion center

Translation axis Reflection plane

Screw axis Inversion axis

Glide plane

(do not change shape) (involve shape change)


Classification of symmetry elements 2

Finite symmetry elements Infinite symmetry elements

Rotation axis Translation axis

Inversion center Screw axis

Reflection plane Glide plane

Inversion axis

(Result in finite number of objects) (Result in infinite number of objects)

Homework3: (due on Oct. 31)

  • Assuming the following facilities are available:
  • sealed x-ray tube source, curved position sensitive detector, radius 150 mm.
  • sealed x-ray tube source, Bragg-Brentano goniometer, radius 200 mm, scintillation detector.
  • rotating anode source, Bragg-Brentano goniometer, radius 285 mm, scintillation detector.
  • sealed x-ray tube source, Bragg-Brentano goniometer, radius 250 mm, cooled solid state detector.
  • Synchrotron x-ray facility, Bragg-Brentano goniometer, radius 100 to 500 mm, cooled solid state detector.
  • 1.If you are to collect powder diffraction data with high resolution, what is the order of these five facilities should you choose?
  • 2.If you have 20 different samples to identify using x-ray diffraction and each facility charges you base on the time used, which facility should you choose (excluding synchrotron facility)?
