Substitutional Defects Kröger-Vink Notation M corresponds to the species. These would include: atoms - e.g. Si, Ni, O, Cl, vacancies - V electrons - e holes - h S indicates the lattice site that the species occupies. For instance, Ni might occupy a Cu site. In this case, M would be replaced by Ni and S would be replaced by Cu. The site may also be a lattice interstice. In this case the symbol 'i' is used. C corresponds to the electric charge of the species relative to the site that it occupies. To continue the previous example, Ni often has the same valency as Cu, so the relative charge is zero. To indicate null charge, is used. A single indicates a single positive charge, while two would represent two positive charges. Finally, ' signifies a single negative charge, so two, would indicate a double negative charge. Examples = an aluminium ion sitting on an aluminium lattice site, with neutral charge. = a nickel ion sitting on a copper lattice site, with neutral charge.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
