Reciprocal space or " space" is an important concept in solid-state physics and related fields of science. This Demonstration allows you to define lattice vectors in real space; it then displays the lattice in real space as well as its reciprocal counterpart. Additionally, the lattice vectors in both spaces are also given in matrix form.
