Imperfections in Solids
Background image of page 2
Imperfections (defects) in solids So far we considered “ideal” case: unit cells and atoms are in perfect order in crystalline solids. In reality: the perfect order of unit cells and atoms does not exist. All materials contain large number of defects (imperfections) The existence of imperfections significantly change the material properties. Imperfections are sometime introduced to change a certain properties ( one way to do this is alloying)
