hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have found a website in which it has described how to find high symmetry points for wurtzite structure. Here is its address:

http://cmt.dur.ac.uk/sjc/thesis_mcg/node53.html

But, as I know these points are being used for standard numbers of atoms for example in a wurtzite system we should have 4 atoms in the unit cell and if we change the number of atoms these points change!

Please let me know how I can calculate the high symmetry points for a unit cell with 12 atoms in a hexagonal lattice such as wurtzite structure of ZnO nanowires?

Thanks,

Sara
