Next, revisions on what wave-particle duality is, the electronic configuration of elements and what constitutes a bond are made. The unit cell, crystallographic planes, Bravais lattice, atomic packing factor and dislocations in crystals will be amongst the notions used to latter define how physical properties may be influenced by variations in the crystal structure of materials. Symmetry and elements pertaining to symmetry operations will help establish the different point, plane and space groups that lattices can be classified into. Following this, the crystal structure will be studied looking at how real and reciprocal lattices relate. Here, concepts such as Wigner-Seitz cells and the first Brillouin zone will be approached. The principles of diffraction and how these correlated to different types of electromagnetic waves and particles, from light to X-rays, electrons and neutrons will be addressed. Bragg’s law, the Ewald sphere and structure factor are amongst the topics to study. Finally, several case studies such as the assignment of electron diffraction patterns will be used to illustrate the capabilities of each diffraction technique.
