The electrical effects in plastically deformed silver chloride crystals

  • 10 Accesses

  • 1 Citations


Experimental data on the potential difference occurring during deformation are obtained in pure and thallium doped silver chloride crystals. The stress at the yield point is experimentally determined and compared with the theoretical value with good agreement between them. It is concluded that the character of the dislocation atmosphere is very similar in pure and doped crystals for very similar results obtained on both types of crystals.
