Find C-Axis Locations

Group (Subgroup)

Statistics (Crystallographic)

Description

This Filter determines the direction of the C-axis for each Element by applying the quaternion of the Element to the <001> direction, which is the C-axis for Hexagonal materials. This will tell where the C-axis of the Element sits in the sample reference frame.

Note: This Filter will only work properly for Hexagonal materials. The Filter does not apply any symmetry operators because there is only one c-axis (<001>) in Hexagonal materials and thus all symmetry operators will leave the c-axis in the same position in the sample reference frame. However, in Cubic materials, for example, the {100} family of directions are all equivalent and the <001> direction will change location in the sample reference frame when symmetry operators are applied.
