Periodic Table for solid state physicists

  1. Jan 3, 2008 #1
    Does anyone here know of a free periodic table (downloadable/printable) geared towards the needs of solid state? More specifically a table offering Lattice constants/crystallization systems, Mean Debye Temperatures etc. Ideally it would be a perfect copy of the periodic table featured by Ashcroft and Mermin's "Solid State physics". (And yes I have considered scanning that table but the output is not satisfactory for large dimension prints) .

    Thanks in advance for your input!

    I wonder if you were able to find such a table. I've been looking for this for a long time and no success. Let me know if you did. Thanks!

    Thanks for the note. I've seen the webelements.com but I'm looking for a poster to install in the lab. I googled many posters, but none has the info on lattice constant and crystal structure, or I couldn't find any. It would be very helpful in a solid state lab to have a poster version of the table similar to that in Ashcroft and Mermin's book.

    get any old poster of the periodic table and then write in the information from ashcroft and mermin's periodic table on your poster with a magic marker.

    or, how about making a copy of A+M's table and then taking it to kinkos and blowing it up.

    i wonder if you can find Ashcroft's book of electric version, and print the periodic table of it.
