On the interpretation of In-vacancy complexes observed by PAC

Letter to the Editor


Using PAC we studied the annealing of defects in quenched Al samples doped with111In. The experiments show that two In-vacancy complexes are formed in recovery stage III, characterized by their hyperfine parameters ω=3π·eQVZZ/10 h=64 Mrad/s and 123 Mrad/s. We conclude that the first complex consists of fewer vacancies than the second one, in contradiction to the interpretation given by Pleiter and Prasad in a recent article.
