Dislocations are lines of irregularity in the structure of a solid analogous to the bumps in a badly laid carpet. Like these bumps they can be easily moved, and they provide the most important mechanism by which the solid can be deformed. They also have a strong influence on crystal growth and on the electronic properties of semiconductors.

Key Features

· Influence of dislocations on piezoelectric behavior
· New mechanisms for hardening in twinned crystals
· Bringing theories of martensite transformation into agreement
· Atomic scale motion of dislocations in electron microscopy
· Dislocation patterns deduced from X-ray diffraction
· Role of dislocations in friction
· Dislocation motion in quasicrystals


Research workers in materials science (novelty and authority of contributions)
