Rigaku Publishes New Crystallography Lattice Systems Poster

December 30, 2015 – The Woodlands, Texas. Rigaku Corporation has published a new scientific poster depicting the 14 Bravais lattice types categorized into 7 lattice systems.

In crystallography, a lattice is a 3-dimensional geometric arrangement of atoms, molecules or ions composing a crystal. There are 14 unique combinations of lattice types, collectively known as the Bravais lattices.

The new poster presents the 14 Bravais lattice types arranged within the seven lattice systems: triclinic, monoclinic, orthorhombic, tetragonal, trigonal, hexagonal, cubic.

The poster is available as a reference for those employing the technique of single crystal X-ray diffraction. This technique is applied across a wide range of areas, including new synthetic chemicals, catalysts, metal organic frameworks, pharmaceuticals, and natural products.

An A1 size copy of The Lattice Systems Scientific Poster is available for download at http://tinyurl.com/Lattice-Poster

Print-ready files for the B1 size (707 x 1000 mm) poster may be requested by all interested parties from michael.nelson@rigaku.com.
