Crystallisation and Screening

Crystals are distinguished from amorphous solids by possessing both short and long range regular structure, minimal repeating units within this matrix are termed unit cells. Crystals are of lower intrinsic energy than amorphous forms and are stabilised by a number of different intermolecular forces:
