High index planes

  1. Jan 20, 2009 #1

    can anyone explain how miller indices can be determined for high index planes?
    For example, why is it that

    (544) = (S)-[ 9(111) x (100) ]

    I tried to figure it out but i could no find a pattern

    Thx in advance

    3-component Miller Indices are defined in terms of cubic unit cells. Go back to the definition of a Miller Index. For (544) = (S)-[ 9(111) x (100) ], I cannot answer because I don't know what S is.
