Dissemination of IT for the Promotion of Materials Science (DoITPoMS)



On completion of this TLP you should:

  • Understand the concept of a lattice plane;
  • Be able to determine the Miller indices of a plane from its intercepts with the edges of the unit cell;
  • Be able to visualise and draw a plane when given its Miller indices;
  • Be aware of how knowledge of lattice planes and their Miller indices can help to understand other concepts in materials science.
