The Space Group List Project as a Poster

The Space group list project ‘230’ – a collection of examples containing at least one crystal structure for all of the 230 space groups – is now available as a synoptical poster (size DIN A0, 84.1 x 118.9 mm):


Feel free to download and share the PDF!

If you print the poster on canvas you may use it also as a special shower curtain 😉

    I am very impressed by the work it cost to assemble such a great poster. However, there is one thing that prevents me from downloading and printing it: In crystallographic space groups the inversion axes are NOT indicated by a minus sign before the number of the axis but by a line over the respective number, the space group name for example ist not “p minus 1” but “P 1 bar”. Therefore I would like to ask you if it would be possible to correct the respective space groups in the poster, which cannot be a problem with nowadays software. Besides that I really like your work.

    Dear Ingo,

    thanks for your kind comment! You are, of course, right – it may sound funny, but in the end I was too lazy to set the bar signs correctly.

    However, now I caught this up and you can download the corrected version!

    kind regards!

      Dear Frank,

      I thank you very much for doing this and I have already started to print your poster which will get a nice place at one of my office walls (and the moment my colleagues will spot it there I am sure this won’t remain the only copy at our institute).

      Best regards, Ingo
