This program plots the First Brillouin zone and Fermi surface of all 14 3d reciprocal Bravais lattices.
Note that the lattices are already reciprocal
Glut and Glew packages already installed on your computer
These packages are built on OpenGL
To use this program follow these steps-
This program was tested on ubuntu 12.10
First, choose a lattice you wish to visualize, by clicking the right mouse button, then clicking on "Lattices" and then clicking on your favorite lattice. Note that these lattices are already reciprocal lattices.
At this point both Brillouin zone and Fermi surface are displayed.
To toggle the visibility of the Brillouin zone right click on the mouse and choose “Toggle Brillouin zone”.
To toggle the visibility of the Fermi surface right click on the mouse and choose “Toggle Fermi surface”.
See the Youtube video for a complete run of the code.
