Discrete breathers in crystals with the NaCl structure
- 64 Downloads
In the recent decade, the spatially localized large-amplitude vibrational modes in defect-free crystals, referred to as discrete breathers (DBs), are intensively investigated in the materials science. This review reports the main results on gap DBs in crystals with the NaCl structure. The experimental proof of their existence in a NaI crystal is described. A number of molecular dynamics simulation results are presented, including new so far unpublished data. The properties of crystals potentially affected by the DBs are discussed.
