unit cell

[′yü·nət ′sel]
A parallelepiped which will fill all space under the action of translations which leave the crystal lattice unchanged. Also known as structure cell.
(mining engineering)
In flotation, a single cell.

Unit Cell


the smallest volume in a crystal. Translations of a unit cell in three dimensions make it possible to form a whole crystal lattice. A unit cell can be selected in various ways.
