Cubic crystal system

An example of the cubic crystals,halite (NaCl) with rock-salt structure.

A network model of a simple cubic system.

The primitive and cubic close-packed (also known as face-centred cubic) unit cells.

In crystallography, the cubic (or isometric) crystal system is a crystal system where the unit

cell is in the shape of a cube. This is one of the most common and simplest shapes found
in crystals and minerals.
There are three main varieties of these crystals, called simple cubic (sc), body-centered
cubic (bcc), and face-centered cubic (fcc), plus a number of other variants listed below.
Note that although the unit cell in these crystals is conventionally taken to be a cube,
the primitive unit cell often is not. This is related to the fact that in most cubic crystal
systems, there is more than one atom per cubic unit cell.

The three Bravais lattices which form cubic crystal systems are

Simple cubic (P) Body-centered cubic (I) Face-centered cubic (F)

The simple cubic system (P) consists of one lattice point on each corner of the cube. Each
atom at the lattice points is then shared equally between eight adjacent cubes, and the unit
cell therefore contains in total one atom (1⁄8 × 8).
The body-centered cubic system (I) has one lattice point in the center of the unit cell in
addition to the eight corner points. It has a net total of 2 lattice points per unit cell ( 1⁄8 × 8
+ 1).
The face-centered cubic system (F) has lattice points on the faces of the cube, that each
gives exactly one half contribution, in addition to the corner lattice points, giving a total of 4
atoms per unit cell (1⁄8 × 8 from the corners plus 1⁄2× 6 from the faces).
Attempting to create a C-centered cubic crystal system (i.e., putting an extra lattice point in
the center of each horizontal face) would result in a simple tetragonal Bravais lattice.

Crystal classes
The isometric crystal system class names, examples, Schönflies notation, Hermann-Mauguin
notation, point groups, International Tables for Crystallography space group number,
orbifold, type, and space groups are listed in the table below. There are a total 36 cubic space

Atomic packing factors and examples

One important characteristic of a crystalline structure is its atomic packing factor. This is
calculated by assuming that all the atoms are identical spheres, with a radius large enough
that each sphere abuts the next. The atomic packing factor is the proportion of space filled by
these spheres.
Assuming one atom per lattice point, in a simple cubic lattice with cube side length a, the
sphere size would be a⁄2 and the atomic packing factor turns out to be about 0.524 (which is
quite low). Similarly, in a bcc lattice, the atomic packing factor is 0.680, and in fcc it is 0.740.
The fcc value is the highest theoretically possible value for any lattice, although there are
other lattices which also achieve the same value, such as hexagonal close packed and one
version of tetrahedral bcc.
As a rule, since atoms in a solid attract each other, the more tightly-packed arrangements of
atoms tend to be more common. (Loosely packed arrangements do occur, though, for
example if the orbital hybridization demands certain bond angles.) Accordingly, the simple-
cubic structure, with especially low atomic packing factor, is rare in nature, but is found
in polonium. Thebcc and fcc, with their higher densities, are both quite common in nature.
Examples of bcc include iron, chromium, tungsten, and niobium. Examples of fcc include
lead (for example inlead(II) nitrate), aluminum, copper, gold and silver.

Multi-element compounds
Compounds that consist of more than one element (e.g. binary compounds) often have crystal
structures based on a cubic crystal system. Some of the more common ones are listed here.

Interpenetrating simple cubic (caesium chloride) structure

A caesium chlorideunit cell. The two colors of balls represent the two types of atoms.

One structure is the "interpenetrating simple cubic" structure, also called the "caesium
chloride" structure. Each of the two atom types forms a separate simple cubic lattice, with an
atom of one type at the center of each cube of the other type. Altogether, the arrangement of
atoms is the same as body-centered cubic, but with alternating types of atoms at the different
lattice sites.
Examples of compounds with this structure include caesium chloride itself, as well as certain
other alkali halides when prepared at low temperatures or high pressures. More generally, this
structure is more likely to be formed from two elements whose ions are of roughly the same
size (for example, ionic radius of Cs+= 167 pm, and Cl− = 181 pm) .
The space group of this structure is called Pm3m (in Hermann-Mauguin notation), or "221"
(in the International Tables for Crystallography). The Strukturbericht designation is "B2".
The rock-salt crystal structure. Each atom has six nearest neighbors, withoctahedral

The coordination number of each atom in the structure is 8: the central cation is coordinated
to 8 anions on the corners of a cube as shown, and similarly, the central anion is coordinated
to 8 cations on the corners of a cube.

Rock-salt structure
Another structure is the "rock salt" or "sodium chloride" (halite) structure. In this, each of the
two atom types forms a separate face-centered cubic lattice, with the two lattices
interpenetrating so as to form a 3D checkerboard pattern.
Examples of compounds with this structure include sodium chloride itself, along with almost
all other alkali halides, and "many divalent metal oxides, sulfides, selenides, and
tellurides". More generally, this structure is more likely to be formed if the cation is slightly
smaller than the anion (a cation/anion radius ratio of 0.414 to 0.732).
The space group of this structure is called Fm3m (in Hermann-Mauguin notation), or "225"
(in the International Tables for Crystallography). The Strukturbericht designation is "B1".
The coordination number of each atom in this structure is 6: each cation is coordinated to 6
anions at the vertices of an octahedron, and similarly, each anion is coordinated to 6 cations
at the vertices of an octahedron.

Zincblende structure

A zincblende unit cell

Another common structure is the "zincblende" structure (also spelled "zinc blende"), named
after the mineral zincblende (sphalerite). As in the rock-salt structure, the two atom types
form two interpenetrating face-centered cubic lattices. However, it differs from rock-salt
structure in how the two lattices are positioned relative to one another. Altogether, the
arrangement of atoms is the same as diamond cubic structure, but with alternating types of
atoms at the different lattice sites.
Examples of compounds with this structure include zincblende itself, many compound
semiconductors (such as gallium arsenide and cadmium telluride), and a wide array of other
binary compounds.
The space group of this structure is called F43m (in Hermann-Mauguin notation), or "#216"
in the International Tables for Crystallography. The Strukturbericht designation is "B3".
