# The cI16 Li Structure

You can now

• Prototype: Li
• Pearson Symbol: cI16
• Space Group: I43d (Cartesian and lattice coordinate listings available)
• Number: 220
• Reference: Hanfland et al., Nature 408, 174 (2000).
• Other elements with this structure: Na (under pressure)
• Primitive Vectors:  A1 = -½ a X + ½ a Y + ½ a Z A2 = + ½ a X - ½ a Y + ½ a Z A3 = + ½ a X + ½ a Y - ½ a Z
• Basis Vectors:  B1 = + 2 x A1 + 2 x A2 + 2 x A3 = + x a X + x a Y + x a Z (Li) (16c) B2 = + (2 x - ½) A1 + (2 x - ½) A2 + (2 x - ½) A3 = + (x - ¼) a X + (x - ¼) a Y + (x - ¼) a Z (Li) (16c) B3 = + (½ - 2 x) A1 + ½ A2 = + x a X - x a Y + (½ - x) a Z (Li) (16c) B4 = - 2 x A1 + ½ A2 = + (¼ + x) a X - (¼ + x) a Y + (¼ - x) a Z (Li) (16c) B5 = + (½ - 2 x) A2 + ½ A3 = + (½ - x) a X + x a Y - x a Z (Li) (16c) B6 = - 2 x A2 + ½ A3 = + (¼ - x) a X + (¼ + x) a Y - (¼ + x) a Z (Li) (16c) B7 = + ½ A1 + (½ - 2 x) A3 = - x a X + (½ - x) a Y + x a Z (Li) (16c) B8 = + ½ A1 - 2 x A3 = - (¼ + x) a X + (¼ - x) a Y + (¼ + x) a Z (Li) (16c)
