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.
