1. For directions: Determine coordinates for “head” and “tail” of the direction “head”-”tail” Clear fraction/reduce results to lowest integers. Enclose numbers in [] and a bar over negative integers. For planes: Identify points at which the plane intercepts the x, y, z axis. Take reciprocals of these intercepts. Clear fractions and do NOT reduce to the lowest integers. Enclose the numbers in parentheses () and a bar over negative integers. Remember Miller Indices?

2. Special note for directions… • For Miller Indices of directions: • Since directions are vectors, a direction and its negative are not identical! • [100] ≠ [100] Same line, opposite directions! • A direction and its multiple are identical! • [100] is the same direction as [200] (need to reduce!) • [111] is the same direction as [222], [333]! • Certain groups of directions are equivalent; they have their particular indices because of the way we construct the coordinates. • Family of directions: <111>=[111], [111],[111],[111],…

3. Special note for planes… • For Miller Indices of planes: • Planes and their negatives are identical (not the case for directions!) • E.g. (020) = (020) • Planes and their multiples are not identical (Again, different from directions!) We can show this by defining planar densities and planar packing fractions. • E.g. (010) ≠ (020) See example! • Each unit cell, equivalent planes have their particular indices because of the orientation of the coordinates. • Family of planes: {110} = (110),(110),(110),(101), (101),… • In cubic systems, a direction that has the same indices as a plane is perpendicular to that plane.

5. (a0)2 SOLUTION The total atoms on each face is one. The planar density is: However, no atoms are centered on the (020) planes. Therefore, the planar density is zero. The (010) and (020) planes are not equivalent!

If the plane does NOT pass through the center of that atom, we do not count it!

17. Crystals as Building Blocks • Some engineering applications require single crystals: --turbine blades(Co and Ni superalloys) --diamond single crystals for abrasives Fig. 8.33(c), Callister 7e. (Fig. 8.33(c) courtesy of Pratt and Whitney). (Courtesy Martin Deakins, GE Superabrasives, Worthington, OH. Used with permission.) • Properties of crystalline materials often related to crystal structure. --Ex: Quartz fractures more easily along some crystal planes than others.

Danielson, Teledyne Wah Chang Albany) 1 mm Isotropic • Nb-Hf-W plate with an electron beam weld. • Each "grain" is a single crystal. • If grains are randomly oriented, overall component properties are not directional. • Grain sizes typ. range from 1 nm to 2 cm (i.e., from a few to millions of atomic layers).

23. (c) 2003 Brooks/Cole Publishing / Thomson Learning • Destructive (out of phase) x-ray beam gives a weak signal. • Reinforcing (in phase) interactions between x-rays and the crystalline material. Reinforcement occurs at angles that satisfy Bragg’s law.

28. SUMMARY • Atoms may assemble into crystalline or amorphous structures. • Common metallic crystal structures are FCC, BCC, and HCP. Coordination number and atomic packing factor are the same for both FCC and HCP crystal structures. • We can predict the density of a material, provided we know the atomic weight, atomic radius, and crystal geometry (e.g., FCC, BCC, HCP). • Crystallographic points, directions and planes are specified in terms of indexing schemes. Crystallographic directions and planes are related to atomic linear densities and planar densities.

29. SUMMARY • Materials can be single crystals or polycrystalline. Material properties generally vary with single crystal orientation (i.e., they are anisotropic), but are generally non-directional (i.e., they are isotropic) in polycrystals with randomly oriented grains. • Some materials can have more than one crystal structure. This is referred to as polymorphism (or allotropy). • X-ray diffraction is used for crystal structure and interplanar spacing determinations.
