INTRODUCTION TO CRYSTAL PHYSICS
INTRODUCTION TO CRYSTAL PHYSICS Matter exists in three states viz. solids, liquids and gases. All these states are composed of atoms and molecules. When we focus the solids, they are classified into many types based on several properties like electrical, mechanical, magnetic, optical, thermal etc.,. The main reason for these different properties of solids is their crystal structure.
INTRODUCTION TO CRYSTAL PHYSICS ‘What is Crystal Physics? Crystal Physics’ or ‘Crystallography’ is a branch of physics that deals with the study of all possible types of crystals and the physical properties of crystalline solids by the determination of their actual structure by using X-rays, neutronwww.studentsfocus.com beams and electron beams.
