In mathematics and solid state physics, the first Brillouin zone is a uniquely defined primitive cell in reciprocal space. In the same way the Bravais lattice is divided up into Wigner–Seitz cells in the real lattice, the reciprocal lattice is broken up into Brillouin zones.

Brillouin Zones, in 3D: 3) Cubic structures: the first 4 zones in extended space: (image from MathWorld) 4) Body centered tetragonal. [Liu et al. Physica B 407, 1139 (2012), with electron Fermi surface segments for KFe 2Se 2 superconductor, in reduced scheme]. The first Brillouin zone of an fcc lattice has the same shape (a truncated octahedron) as the Wigner-Seitz cell of a bcc lattice. Some crystals with an fcc Bravais lattice are Al, Cu, C (diamond), Si, Ge, Ni, Ag, Pt, Au, Pb, NaCl. Cut-out pattern to make a paper model of the fcc Brillouin zone.

For any crystal, the First Brillouin Zone is found using the Wigner-Seitz construction for the reciprocal lattice. The high-symmetry points are labeled by certain letters mainly as a convention--like you said Gamma for (0,0,0) etc.

Feb 01, 2018 · Calculated vibrational frequencies and eigenvectors at the Brillouin zone center of the T-C5 carbon. The values in the parentheses are the frequencies, unit: cm − 1 . The B 1 mode with frequency of 798.2/783.8 cm − 1 is induced by the opposite vibration of the two pairs of atoms along a and b axes.

The KPOINTS file is used to specify the Bloch vectors (k-points) that will be used to sample the Brillouin zone in your calculation. There are several different ways one may specify the k-points in the KPOINTS file: (1) as an automatically generated (shifted) regular mesh of points, (2) by means of the beginning and end-points of line segments, or (3) as an explicit list of points and weights.

In mathematics and solid state physics, the first Brillouin zone is a uniquely defined primitive cell in reciprocal space. The boundaries of this cell are given by planes related to points on the reciprocal lattice. It is found by the same method as for the Wigner–Seitz cell in the Bravais lattice.

Brillouin zones • A Brillouin Zone is defined as a Wigner-Seitz primitive cell in the reciprocal latticeTo find it • Draw the reciprocal lattice • Draw vectors to all the nearest reciprocal lattice points • Draw perpendicular bisectors to each of these • The Brillouin Zone is related to the diffraction condition
