Crystal structure of Ti3SiC2


Figure 22: Crystal structure of Ti3SiC2 (space group P63/mmc). The close-packed titanium layers containing the carbon atoms are shown at the left-hand side. The edge-sharing Ti6C octahedra are emphasized. At the right-hand side a (110) cut through the hexagonal cell is shown. The titanium and silicon atoms form close-packed layers with the stacking sequence hhhc, where the silicon atoms correspond to the second h.
