Name the parameters that characterize a unit cell.


Name the parameters that characterize a unit cell.


The six parameters that characterise a unit cell are as follows.

(i) Its dimensions along the three edges, ab, and c

These edges may or may not be equal.

(ii) Angles between the edges

These are the angle  (between edges and c), β (between edges a and c), and γ (between edges a and b).
