Relations between structure and morphology of crystals

By Piet Hartman


An attempt is made to find relations between crystal structure and crystal morphology on an energy basis. After an historical approach to the subject the general principles, outlined by Hartman & Perdok (1952), are treated in greater detail in chapter II. It is concluded that the morphology of a crystal is governed by chains of strong bonds, running through the structure in a limited number of directions. The energetical period of such a chain of strong bonds is called a periodic bond chain vector (P.B.c.vector). ... Zie: Summary
