Chemistry: It’s Elemental

Cover: Bismuth Crystals

In , Gianna Alemán Milán, Brian Millier, Andrew Ritchie, Craig Bryan, Sarah Vinette, Bjorn Wielens, and Mary Anne White describe a laboratory experiment introducing students to solid-state and materials science. The experiment illustrates long-range translational order, crystal growth, and the macroscopic manifestations of that order. This is visually demonstrated through the novel preparation and characterization of large, well-formed bismuth crystals.
