1 MS/EST 143, Problem Set #2 assigned 04/03/11 due 04/08/11 1. Calculate the equilibrium concentration (#/#) and equilibrium number (#/volume) of vacancies in copper at 1000 °C. The activation enthalpy for vacancy formation is 0.9 eV/atom and the density at 1000 °C is 8.4 g/cm 3 . State any assumptions. 2. Write formally correct defect information reactions and the corresponding mass action equilibrium constants for the following. Refer to tabulated ionic radii for guidance ( e.g. provided in Chiang, Table 1.2). If you think more than one incorporation mechanism is possible, briefly discuss why and show the different possibilities. i. Solid solution of CaCl

Solid solution of Al 2 O 3 in BaTiO 3 3. LiF has a Schottky formation energy of 2.6 eV and a bandgap of 12 eV. At 500 C estimate the relative concentrations of ionic and electronic defects, and determine which are dominant on an absolute concentration basis. 4. Construct the Brouwer diagram for a pure binary oxide MO of the rocksalt structure for which, at the temperature of interest, K i >> K s . (That is, the bandgap is small relative to the Schottky energy)....
