Behavior of some structural defects in single-crystal germanium

  • A. M. Orlov

The behavior of copper-based secondary phases has been investigated, in single-crystal germanium in the presence of a direct electric current. It is shown that in the temperature interval 700 to 850°C the inclusions are displaced by the current in the direction of the negative electrode. At constant current density, the displacement velocity is determined by the crystallographic orientation of the specimens and the temperature of the experiment. Ways are indicated for the practical utilization of the phenomena being observed.
