Material Detail



This applet shall visualize the shape of different unit cells and the relations between directional vectors [uvw] and the normals of planes (hkl). Their directions are identical for the cubic system but may differ in any other system. If "unit length" is checked the lengths of the [uvw] and the lengths of the plane normals (hkl) are scaled to a length of 1 Angstroem. This applet also shows the lengths of the vectors and calculates the angle of a given pair of vectors.
