The Fourteen Lattices of Auguste Bravais

submitted by: SirZerp

This video is made as a primer for Condensed Matter students and is showing the potential energy fields of different Bravais Lattices.

It was made using the Coulomb's law to compute a cube of data. The dataset is then sent to a ray tracer which produces the images in the video. The background colors show the potential energy contours of different charge configurations. The colors red green blue are used in an alternating sequence for adjacent contours.
