12 Reciprocal Lattice: Fourier transform of the spatial wavefunction of the original lattice wave process (e. g. electromagnetic) in the crystalCrystal: periodicPhysical properties function of a crystalCrystal translation vectorPeriodic function Exponential Fourier Series

17 The vector set is the same as the FCC primitive translation vector.Unit of the reciprocal lattice is 1/length.

25 More geometric relation between direct lattice and reciprocal lattice:e1, e2, e3: contravariant basis vector of R3covariant basis vectors e1, e2, e3 (reciprocal lattice)ei and ei are not normal, but mutually orthonormal:For any vector v:
26 v can be expressed in two (reciprocal) ways: Einstein’s summationconvention, omitting No proof here, but you can check whether these relationis correct or not?Use BCC or FCC lattice as examples, next page!
27 Use the BCC lattice as examples AssumeYou can checkthe other wayaround.
