Impurity Atom Effects in Metallic Crystals

  • J. R. BeelerJr.


This paper is concerned with compound defects in metals which consist of impurity atoms and crystal lattice defects. These compound defects are often referred to as complexes.1 First, the paper deals with complexes of metalloid interstitial impurity atoms with monovacancies, divacancies, split-interstitials, and free surfaces. Initial results on how a metalloid interstitial impurity atom affects the production of a Frenkel pair are discussed briefly. Second, the paper takes up the migration of large and small substitutional impurity atoms for which the principal interest is the role of impurity atoms as traps for crystal lattice defects in displacement spike annealing.
