face-centered cubic lattice

[′fās ‚sen·tərd ¦kyüb·ik ′lad·əs]
(crystallography)
A lattice whose unit cells are cubes, with lattice points at the center of each face of the cube, as well as at the vertices. Abbreviated fcc lattice.

Atoms on either side of the boundary have the normal interatomic separation expected in a face-centered cubic lattice. The interfacial energy of the boundary is very small.
Analogous to the face-centered cubic lattice and unlike the square and rectangular lattices, the exciton band does not have a reflection point for the density of states.
Four- and five-dimensional analogs of the face-centered cubic lattice produce the densest lattice packings in four and five dimensions.
