Description

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

Readership
