Simple Crystal Structures and Miller Indices

This simulation illustrates several crystal structures, showing unit cells and Miller indices. The goals/tasks of this simulation are:
       1. Repetition of unit cell to make crystals
       2. Differences in SC, BCC, FCC, HCP and various simple ceramics structure
       3. Conventional unit cell (use shift in three directions)
       4. Contact condition for atoms (by changing atomic radius)
       5. Close-packed directions and close-packed planes
       6. Draw planes for Miller indices
       7. Explore crystals by rotation and zoom (this may run slowly)

This simulation runs on desktop using the free Wolfram Player. Download the Wolfram Player here.
