The structure of a material - arrangement of its internal components Subatomic structure Atomic structure Microscopic structure Large groups of atoms aggregated together Macroscopic structure Elements that may be viewed with the naked eye
4.1 Introduction Imperfections or defects in crystal structures ‘mistakes’ in atomic arrangement single atoms (point defects) rows of atoms (linear defects) planes of atoms (planar defects) 3D clusters of atoms (volume defects)

Point Defects 4.2 Vacancies and Self-Interstitials Vacancy Vacant lattice site (one which is normall y occupied) Self-interstitial Atom that is crowded into an interstitial site (one which is normally not occupied)
4.2 Vacancies and Self-Interstitials Self-interstitials in metals Atom is significantly larger than the interstitial site Introduces relatively large distortions Exists in small concentrations

Solid Solutions Solid solutions are formed when… Solute atoms are added to the solvent Crystal structure is maintained No new structures are formed
Substitutional solid solutions Solute or impurity atoms substitute for the solvent or host atoms.
