**Examples of point group operation**

At a general position [x y z], the symmetry is 1, Multiplicity = 4 The multiplicity tells us how many atoms are generated by symmetry if we place a single atom at that position. y x

19
**(2)At a special position [100], the symmetry is**

2. Multiplicity = 2 At a special position [010], the symmetry is 2. Multiplicity = 2 At a special position [001], the symmetry is 2. Multiplicity = 2

20
#2 Point group 4 At a general position [x y z], the symmetry is 1. Multiplicity = 4

21
**(2) At a special position [001], the symmetry is**

4. Multiplicity = 1 #3 Point group 4

22
**At a general position [x y z], the symmetry**

is 1. Multiplicity = 4 (2) At a special position [001], the symmetry is 𝑚. Multiplicity = 2

23
**(3) At a special position [000], the symmetry is 4 . Multiplicity = 1**

24
**Transformation of vector components**

Original vector is P =[ 𝑝 1 , 𝑝 2 , 𝑝 3 ]= 𝑥, 𝑦, 𝑧 P =𝑥 x +𝑦 y +𝑧 z i.e. When symmetry operation transform the original axes x , y , z to the new axes x′ , y′ , z′ New vector after transformation of axes becomes P ′ =[ 𝑝 ′ 1, 𝑝′ 2, 𝑝′ 3 ]= 𝑢, 𝑣, 𝑤 i.e. P′ =𝑢 x ′ +𝑣 y′ +𝑤 z′

25
**The angular relations between the axes may be specified by drawing up a table of direction cosines.**

Old axes x y z New axes x′ a11 = cos x′ x a12 = cos x′ y a13 = cos x′ z y′ a21 = cos y′ x a22 = cos y′ y a23 = cos y′ z z′ a31 = cos z′ x a32 = cos z′ y a33 = cos z′ z

26
Then 𝑢=𝑥∗cos x′ x +𝑦∗cos x′ y + 𝑧∗cos x′ z i.e. 𝑝′ 1 = a 11 ∗ 𝑝 1 + a 12 ∗ 𝑝 2 + a 13 ∗ 𝑝 3 In a dummy notation 𝑝′ 1 = a 1j ∗ 𝑝 j Similarly 𝑝′ 2 = a 2j ∗ 𝑝 j 𝑝′ 3 = a 3j ∗ 𝑝 j i.e. 𝑝′ i = a ij ∗ 𝑝 j

27
**Moreover, by repeating the argument for the reverse transformation and we have**

𝑥=𝑢∗cos x ′ x +𝑣∗cos y ′ x + 𝑤∗cos z ′ x 𝑝 1 = a j1 ∗ 𝑝′ j Similarly, 𝑝 2 = a j2 ∗ 𝑝′ j 𝑝 3 = a j3 ∗ 𝑝′ j i.e. “old” in terms of “new” 𝑝 i = a ji ∗ 𝑝′ j

28
**For example: #1 Point group 4**

The direction cosines for the first operation is Old axes x y z New axes x′ = - y a11 = 0 a12 =−1 a13 = 0 y′ = x a21 = 1 a22 = 0 a23 = 0 z′ = z a31 = 0 a32 = 0 a33 =1

29
**After symmetry operation, the new position is [x y z] in new axes.**

We can express it in old axes by 𝑝 i = a ji ∗ 𝑝′ j = 𝑝′ j ∗a ji i.e. [ 𝑝 1 𝑝 2 𝑝 3 ]=[ 𝑥 𝑦 𝑧 ] 0 − =[ 𝑦 𝑥 𝑧 ] 𝑝 1 𝑝 2 𝑝 3 = − x y z = y x z or

Symmorphic space group is defined as a space group that may be specified entirely by symmetry operation acting at a common point (the operations need not involve τ) as well as the unit cell translation. (73 space groups) Nonsymmorphic space group is defined as a space group involving at least a translation τ.

**Determining a Crystal Structure from**

Symmetry & Composition Example: Consider the following information: Stoichiometry = SrTiO3 Space Group = Pm 3 m a = 3.90 Å Density = 5.1 g/cm3

72
First step: calculate the number of formula units per unit cell : Formula Weight SrTiO3 = (16.00) = g/mol (M) Unit Cell Volume = (3.9010-8 cm)3 = 5.93 cm3 (V) (5.1 g/cm3)(5.93 cm3) : weight in a unit cell ( g/mole) / (6.022 1023/mol) : weight of one molecule of SrTiO3

73
** number of molecules per unit cell : 1 SrTiO3. **

(5.1 g/cm3)(5.93 cm3)/ ( g/mole/6.022 1023/mol) = 0.99 number of molecules per unit cell : 1 SrTiO3. From the space group tables (only part of it) 6 e 4mm x00, -x00, 0x0, 0-x0,00x, 00-x 3 d 4/mmm ½ 0 0, 0 ½ 0, 0 0 ½ c 0 ½ ½ , ½ 0 ½ , ½ ½ 0 1 b m 3 m ½ ½ ½ a 000
