The space lattice of gallium (Ga) belongs to the orthorhombic system D

with lattice constants

aZ0.45167 nm, bZ0.45107 nm and cZ0.76448 nm. A unit cell contains 8 atoms. It is

considered to form the molecular lattice of Ga

, which consists of 3 pairs of atoms with a

bond length of 0.271-0.280 nm and a pair with a short bond length of 0.244 nm.
