BCC Structure

The sample element is taken as Tungsten (W)

Figure 1. Basic body centered cubic (bcc) crystal structure.
  • Primitive Vectors:

A1 = - ½ a X + ½ a Y + ½ a Z
A2 = + ½ a X - ½ a Y + ½ a Z
A3 = + ½ a X + ½ a Y - ½ a Z

  • Basis Vector:

B1 = 0 (W) (2a)


However in orthogonal unitcell:

A1 = a X
A2 = a Y
A3 = a Z

And the Basis vectors:

B1 = 0.0 0.0 0.0
B2 = 0.5 0.5 0.5
