Laser-induced dislocation structures in copper single crystals

  • F. Haessner
  • W. Seitz


Mechanical Stress fields of nearly radial symmetry are produced by focused laser irradiation on (111) surfaces of copper single crystals. The dislocation structures in the vicinity of the heat-affected zone can be revealed with the aid of an etch pit technique. The observed etch pit pattern is in very good agreement with calculations based on dislocation theory.
