Figure 1. (a) and (b) show two options for the arrangement of atoms in a 13-atom cluster. (a) is the cuboctahedral configuration (four triangles on a square base), while (b) is the icosahedral configuration (composed of 20 tetrahedra). (c) illustrates that five tetrahedra can be packed around a common edge (the red line), but will leave a gap of approximately 7 degrees.
