If a lattice transforms into itself after a rotation by j ¼ (360 /n), it will also do so for all rotations by j0 ¼ p (360 /n), p ¼ 1, . , n. This property can be used to characterize rotation axes by their foldedness n. An n-fold rotation axis in a lattice allows rotations by all integer multiples of angle (360 /n) about its axis, where the rotated images coincide with the initial lattice. Thus, lattices allow only two-, three-, four-, and sixfold rotation axes as rotational point symmetry elements.
Along R1, R2, R3 ﬁlls the complete three-dimensional space describing the inﬁnite crystal. 9) and connected with the atom density of the crystal, is unique. However, the cell shape is not. The shape is determined only by the requirement that a continued repetition of the cell in the three directions along R1, R2, R3 ﬁlls the complete three-dimensional space without holes. This can be achieved by very differently shaped alternative unit cells. 17 Alternative unit cells of the square lattice (see text).
26. The present lattice classiﬁcation is based on lattices where lattice vector R3 points along a twofold rotation axis. Therefore, it cannot be immediately used to describe lattices with a pure threefold rotation axis along R3 since the combination of coinciding two- and threefold rotation axes leads to a sixfold rotation axis and, thus, to the hexagonal crystal system discussed before. 26 Morphological unit cell of the hexagonal-P lattice. Lattice vectors R1, R2, R3 are shown in red and labeled accordingly.
