Observation of a cubic defect in nickel by means of β-NMR on oriented114In nuclei

  • A. Metz

The hyperfine field of substitutional and defect-associated In atoms in Ni has been determined by observing the radiative destruction of β-asymmetry in the decay of114In. It is argued that the associated defect is a cubic vacancy cluster. The hyperfine fields were determined as −3.30(1) T for substitutional In atoms, and +5.12(2) T for the defect associated atoms.
