# softmatter:Simple Cubic (SC)

Simple cubic unit cell

Space Group: $Pm\bar{3}m$

## Unit Cell

Three-dimensional, rotatable unit cell of the SC lattice [1].

## Nearest Neighbor Distances

Each particle in a perfect simple cubic lattice has exactly the same neighbor environments. If the distance between two nearest neighbor particles is σ then there are:

• 6 nearest neighbors at a distance of σ
• 12 second nearest neighbors at a distance of $\sqrt 2 \sigma$
