A lattice **L'** obtained by another lattice **L** by removing one or more sets of nodes is called a **sublattice of L**. The translation subgroup **T'** of **L'** is a subgroup of the translation subgroup **T** of **L**. The unit cell of **L'** is larger than the unit cell of **L** and is therefore called a supercell.

In chemistry and material science literature the term sublattice is often incorrectly used to indicate a substructure.
