In the not so far future, an introductory textbook on crystallography will be published.

Electronic Supplementary Materials to the Textbook

Introduction to Crystallography

The book was originally published in German under the title “Faszination Kristalle und Symmetrie”, 1. Auflage, Springer Spektrum, © Springer Fachmedien Wiesbaden GmbH 2016.


If you have a question about the book, if you did not understand a certain fact, then you can write me an email. I will then try to answer your questions satisfactorily and rather promptly. If you allow the content of your question(s) to be published on this website (even anonymously, if you wish), a FAQ list will be created over time, which could also help other people interested in crystallography.

Chapter 1

Crystallographic poetry, spoken, animated and accompanied by music.


More materials will be added soon…
