Miller Indices : Steps – lines: 1. Start at any cell corner; 2. Find coordinates of vectors, subtract; 3. Multiply by common factor, planes: 1. Find intercepts in a, b, c; 2. Find reciprocals 1/a, 1/b, 1/c; 3. Multiply to make integer. Notations – lines: [u v w], planes: (h k l), families of planes: {1 1 1} family includes (1 1 1), (1 1 1) , etc. uu =− Chapter 4 - Imperfections Point Defects - Vacancies: Q V RT V NN e = (N is the total # of atomic sites, Q the energy required to form a vacancy) Thermodynamics: perfect crystal S=0, add n vacancies to N atoms n S G (G = H - T S). Will create vacancies until G is a minimum. Impurities – Substitutional: replace an atom; Interstitial: lie between atoms; Q sol kT sol Xe = . Linear Defects – Dislocations: edge (extra plane of atoms), screw (shear distortion of lattice) dislocations = S thermodynamically unstable. Planar Defects – Grain boundaries: 1 2 n N = (N – avg. # of grains/sq. inch, n – grain size #). Solidification Process : 1. Nucleation; 2. Growth; 3. Impingement grain boundaries form. Metals have more vacancies than self-interstitials.

Chapter 5 - Diffusion Types Interdiffusion : atoms of one metal diffuse into another, Self-diffusion : atoms of metal exchange positions Mechanisms Vacancy Diffusion : substitutional atoms diffuse into vacancies (used by interdiffusion & self-diffusion). Interstitial Diffusion : atoms move into interstitials locations (gases, much faster than vacancy). Steady-state Diffusion
