Miller Indices for a Simple Cubic Lattice

Miller indices are a notation to identify planes in a crystal. The three integers define directions orthogonal to the planes, thus constituting reciprocal basis vectors. Negative integers are usually written with an overbar (e.g., represents ).
The nine lowest-index planes are shown.
