Type of Imperfections Type of Imperfections • Vacancy atoms • Interstitial atoms • Substitutional atoms • Dislocations Grain Boundaries • Twin Boundaries Point defects Line defects Area defects Perfect crystals do not exist! Defect exists in crystals, which is lattice irregularity having one or more dimensions on the order of an atomic size.
Point Defects in Solids Point Defects in Solids Vacancies : -vacant atomic sites in a structure. Self-Interstitials : -"extra" atoms positioned between atomic sites. Vacancy distortion of planes self- interstitial distortion of planes
