centered lattice

centered lattice

[′sen·tərd ′lad·əs]
(crystallography)
A crystal lattice in which the axes have been chosen according to the rules for the crystal system, and in which there are lattice points at the centers of certain planes as well as at the corners.

Both I- and C-centered conventional unit cells can occur with monoclinic centered lattices. The maximum in utility of crystallographic data will be achieved if in each case, the experimentalist follows the conventions in Table (1,2) and selects the type of cell centering (1 or C) that leads to a conventional cell based on the shortest vectors in the ac plane (b-axis unique).
An effective way to promote this harmonization of crystallographic data could be achieved if journals were to modify their rules and policies to require or, at least, recommend that the standard conventional cell be used for reporting the monoclinic centered lattices. Likewise journal editors and reviewers should support this policy in the review process.
