Permitted hkl reflections for the 17 cubic aspects



In the following table the permitted hkl-reflections for powder diffraction (Debye-Scherrer mode) by each of the 17 cubic aspects, corresponding to different crystallographic cubic space groups (indicated as symbols P..., I..., F...) are listed up to s = 40, where s is the square sum of the hkl-reflections: s = h*h+k*k+l*l. If two different hkl combinations give the same s-value (dublets), s is indicated as s* (like for s = 9 h/k/l can be 3/0/0 and 2/2/1, respectively). A reflection is indicated by '+', no reflection by '-' and 'x' if only half of the planes contribute to the reflection. In case of duplets (s*) the sum of reflections from boths hkl combinations is given: combinations +/+, +/-, -/+ result in '+' and combination -/- results in '-', respectively.
