Macro and microsymmetryin relation with compound properties are discussed in detail. Both Schoenfliess and Hermann-Maugin notations are explained. Various approaches to generation of equivalent and special positions are trained. Real structures, crystal morphology, applications in crystallography and IR/Raman spectroscopy are discussed.
Aim of the course -
Last update: Čejka Jan Ing. Ph.D. (31.03.2015)

Students will be able to:

orient in crystallography problems, generate point groups and selected space groups in Schoenfliess and Hermann-Maugin notations, including Wyckoff special positions; calculate equivalent positions using matrices of symmetry elements, transform non-standard space groups.
