1R50.20 - Crystal Models and Lattices
The crystal models may be used to show different crystal structures and the structure of crystal compounds.
The 14 Bravais Lattice Models consist of:
- Triclinic P.
- Monoclinic P.
- Monoclinic C.
- Orthorhombic P.
- Orthorhombic C.
- Orthorhombic F.
- Orthorhombic I.
- Tetragonal P.
- Tetragonal I.
- Triagonal R.
- Triagonal Hexagonal C (or P)
- Cubic P.
- Cubic F.
- Cubic I.
The 18 lattices that supplement the translational Bravais lattices are:
- KS7998a Monoclinic Lattices with Centered XZ-Plane
- KS7998b Monoclinic Base-centered Lattice with Inclined Prism as Primitive Cell
- KS7998c Orthorhombic Base-centered Lattice with Orthorhombic Prism as Primitive Cell
- KS7998d Orthorhombic Face-centered Lattice Rhombohedral-type Primitive Cell
- KS7998e Orthorhombic Face-centered Lattice with Inclined Prism as Primitive Cell
- KS7998f Orthorhombic Body-centered Lattice with Rhombohedral-type Primitive Cell
- KS7998g Orthorhombic Body-centered Lattice with Inclined Prism as Primitive Cell
- KS7998h Tetragonal Base-centered Lattice with Primitive Tetragonal Cell
- KS7998i Tetragonal Face-centered Lattice
- KS7998j Tetragonal Body-centered Lattice with Rhombohedral-type Primitive Cell
- KS7998k Tetragonal Body-centered Lattice with Incline Prism as Primitive Cell
- KS79981 Rhombohedral Lattice with Hexagonal Cell
- KS7998m Rhombohedral Lattice in Hexagonal Prism
- KS7998n Rhombehedral Lattice in Hexagonal Prism (600 angle: cubic close packing)
- KS7998o Hexagonal Lattice: Hexagonal Prism
- KS7998p Cubic Face-centered Lattice with Rhombohedral Primitive Cell
- KS7998q Cubic Body-centered Lattice with Rhombohedral Primitive Cell
- KS7998r Cubic Body-centered Lattice with Inclined Prism as Primitive Cell
Other crystal models we have are Krypton, C Diamond ( ZnS Sphalerite), Wurtzite ( ZnS), C Graphite, Calcite (CaCo3), Cesium Chloride (CsCl), Sodium Chloride (NaCl), Aluminum ( Cubic Close-Packing), Ice - 26 H20 Units, C-60 Buckminsterfullerene, Carbon Dioxide, Copper, Magnesium.
The crystal models may also be built from scratch with the model kits.
An antiques folding pocket stereoscope made by Adam Hilger, Ltd of London with a collection of stereoscope slides. The slides are of crystals, and other scientific apparatus and the whole collection was edited by Sir William Bragg and Prof. W. L. Bragg.
