Unformatted text preview: 1 MSE 2090: Introduction to Materials Science Chapter 4, Defects in crystals Crystals are like people, it is the defects in them which tend to make them interesting!- Colin Humphreys. Defects in Solids 0D, Point defects 9 vacancies 9 interstitials 9 impurities, weight and atomic composition 1D, Dislocations 9 edge 9 screw 2D, Grain boundaries 9 tilt 9 twist 3D, Bulk or Volume defects Atomic vibrations Optional reading (Parts that are not covered / not tested): 4.9 4.10 Microscopy 4.11 Grain size determination Chapter Outline 2 MSE 2090: Introduction to Materials Science Chapter 4, Defects in crystals Why are defects important? Defects have a profound impact on the various properties of materials: Bonding + Crystal Structure + Defects Properties Production of advanced semiconductor devices require not only a rather perfect Si crystal as starting material, but also involve introduction of specific defects in small areas of the sample. Defects are responsible for color (& price) of a diamond crystal. Forging a metal tool introduces defects and increases 2 MSE 2090: Introduction to Materials Science Chapter 4, Defects in crystals Why are defects important?

Defects are responsible for color (& price) of a diamond crystal. Forging a metal tool introduces defects and increases strength of the tool. 3 MSE 2090: Introduction to Materials Science Chapter 4, Defects in crystals Composition Bonding Crystal Structure Thermomechanical Processing Microstructure Defects can be introduced/removed during processing defects introduction and manipulation Processing allows one to achieve the required properties without changes in composition of the material, but just by manipulating the crystal defects . Control (and intentional introduction) of defects is in the core of many types of material processing. 4 MSE 2090: Introduction to Materials Science Chapter 4, Defects in crystals A 2D representation of a perfect single crystal with regular arrangement of atoms. But structures of real materials can be better represented by the schematic drawing to the left. Schematic drawing of a poly-crystal with defects by Helmut Fll, University of Kiel, Germany. Defects in Crystals Real crystals are never perfect, there are always defects 5 MSE 2090: Introduction to Materials Science Chapter 4, Defects in crystals Types of Defects Defects may be classified into four categories depending on their dimension: 0D, Point defects : atoms missing or in irregular places in the lattice (lattice vacancies, substitutional and interstitial impurities, self-interstitials) 1D, Linear defects : groups of atoms in irregular positions (e.g. screw and edge dislocations)positions (e....
