softmatter:Face Centered Cubic (FCC)
From NSDL Materials Digital Library Wiki
Face Centered Cubic is a type of close packed crystal lattice.
Three-dimensional, rotatable unit cell of the FCC lattice .
Nearest Neighbor Distances
Each atom in a FCC lattice has an equivalent nearest neighbor environment. In the simplest case of hard spheres of diameter σ arranged in a FCC lattice, each sphere has:
- 12 nearest neighbors at a distance of σ
- 6 second nearest neighbors at a distance of
- ? third nearest neighbors at a distance of
- 12 fourth nearest neighbors at a distance of 2σ
