Crystal Defects Chapter 6 1

2 IDEAL vs. Reality

3 An ideal crystal can be described in terms a three-dimensionally periodic arrangement of points called lattice and an atom or group of atoms associated with each lattice point called motif: IDEAL Crystal Crystal = Lattice + Motif (basis)

Deviations from this ideality. These deviations are known as crystal defects. 4 Real Crystal

Is a lattice finite or infinite? Is a crystal finite or infinite? Free surface: a 2D defect 5

Point Defects Vacancy 8

There may be some vacant sites in a crystal Surprising Fact There must be a certain fraction of vacant sites in a crystal in equilibrium. A Guess Point Defects: vacancy 9

What is the equilibrium concentration of vacancies? Equilibrium? A crystal with vacancies has a lower free energy G than a perfect crystal Equilibrium means Minimum Gibbs free energy G at constant T and P 10

1. Enthalpy H 2. Entropy S G = H – T S Gibbs Free Energy G =E+PV =k ln W T Absolute temperature E internal energy P pressure V volume k Boltzmann constant W number of microstates 11

Vacancy increases H of the crystal due to energy required to break bonds  H = n  f 12

Vacancy increases S of the crystal due to configurational entropy 13

Number of atoms:N Increase in entropy S due to vacancies: Number of vacacies: n Total number of sites: N+n The number of microstates: Configurational entropy due to vacancy 14

Contribution of vacancy to thermal expansion Increase in vacancy concentration increases the volume of a crystal A vacancy adds a volume equal to the volume associated with an atom to the volume of the crystal 20

Contribution of vacancy to thermal expansion Thus vacancy makes a small contribution to the thermal expansion of a crystal Thermal expansion = lattice parameter expansion + Increase in volume due to vacancy 21

Line Defects Dislocations 26

Missing half plane  A Defect 27

An extra half plane… …or a missing half plane 28

What kind of defect is this? A line defect? Or a planar defect? 29

Extra half plane No extra plane! 30

Missing plane No missing plane!!! 31

An extra half plane… …or a missing half plane Edge Dislocation 32

If a plane ends abruptly inside a crystal we have a defect. The whole of abruptly ending plane is not a defect Only the edge of the plane can be considered as a defect This is a line defect called an EDGE DISLOCATION 33

Slip plane slipno slip dislocation b t Dislocation: slip/no slip boundary b: Burgers vector magnitude and direction of the slip t: unit vector tangent to the dislocation line 38

Dislocation Line: A dislocation line is the boundary between slip and no slip regions of a crystal Burgers vector: The magnitude and the direction of the slip is represented by a vector b called the Burgers vector, Line vector A unit vector t tangent to the dislocation line is called a tangent vector or the line vector. 39

In general, there can be any angle between the Burgers vector b (magnitude and the direction of slip) and the line vector t (unit vector tangent to the dislocation line) b  t  Edge dislocation b  t  Screw dislocation b  t  b  t  Mixed dislocation 41

If b || t Then parallel planes  to the dislocation line lose their distinct identity and become one continuous spiral ramp Hence the name SCREW DISLOCATION 43

A circuit which is closed in a perfect crystal fails to close in an imperfect crystal if its surface is pierced through a dislocation line Such a circuit is called a Burgers circuit The closure failure of the Burgers circuit is an indication of a presence of a dislocation piercing through the surface of the circuit and the Finish to Start vector is the Burgers vector of the dislocation line. 48

b is a lattice translation b If b is not a complete lattice translation then a surface defect will be created along with the line defect. Surface defect 50

Energy of a dislocation line is proportional to b 2. b is a lattice translation Thus dislocations with short b are preferred. b is the shortest lattice translation 53

A dislocation line cannot end abruptly inside a crystal It can end on Free surfaces Grain boundaries On other dislocations at a point called a node On itself forming a loop 62

Slip plane The plane containing both b and t is called the slip plane of a dislocation line. An edge or a mixed dislocation has a unique slip plane A screw dislocation does not have a unique slip plane. Any plane passing through a screw dislocation is a possible slip plane 63

Dislocation Motion Glide (for edge, screw or mixed) Cross-slip (for screw only) Climb (or edge only) 64

Dislocation Motion: Glide Glide is a motion of a dislocation in its own slip plane. All kinds of dislocations, edge, screw and mixed can glide. 65

Glide of an Edge Dislocation   66

Glide of an Edge Dislocation  crss  crss is critical resolved shear stress on the slip plane in the direction of b. 67

Glide of an Edge Dislocation  crss  crss is critical resolved shear stress on the slip plane in the direction of b. 68

Glide of an Edge Dislocation  crss  crss is critical resolved shear stress on the slip plane in the direction of b. 69

Glide of an Edge Dislocation  crss  crss is critical resolved shear stress on the slip plane in the direction of b. 70

Glide of an Edge Dislocation  crss Surface step, not a dislocation A surface step of magnitude b is created if a dislocation sweeps over the entire slip plane 71

 slip no slip Dislocation motion Shear stress is in a direction perpendicular to the GLIDE motion of screw dislocation t b 72

Glide Motion and the Shear Stress For both edge and screw dislocations the glide motion is perpendicular to the dislocation line The shear stress causing the motion is in the direction of motion for edge but perpendicular to it for screw dislocation However, for edge and screw dislocations the shear stress is in the direction of b as this is the direction in which atoms move 73

1 2 3 b Cross-slip of a screw dislocation Change in slip plane of a screw dislocation is called cross-slip Slip plane 1 Slip plane 2 74

Climb of an edge dislocation The motion of an edge dislocation from its slip plane to an adjacent parallel slip plane is called CLIMB    Obstacle climb glide  Slip plane 1 Slip plane 2 1 2 3 4 ? 75

  Atomistic mechanism of climb 76

Climb of an edge dislocation Climb up Climb down Half plane shrinks Half plane stretches Atoms move away from the edge to nearby vacancies Atoms move toward the edge from nearby lattice sites Vacancy concentration goes down Vacancy concentration goes up 77

From Callister Dislocations in a real crystal can form complex networks 78

What is the shape of a naturally grown salt crystal? Why? 84

Surface energy is anisotropic Surface energy depends on the orientation, i.e., the Miller indices of the free surafce n A, n B are different for different surfaces Example 6.5 & Problem 6.16 85

Grain 1 Grain 2 Grain Boundary Internal surface: grain boundary A grain boundary is a boundary between two regions of identical crystal structure but different orientation 86

Grain Boundary: low and high angle One grain orientation can be obtained by rotation of another grain across the grain boundary about an axis through an angle If the angle of rotation is high, it is called a high angle grain boundary If the angle of rotation is low it is called a low angle grain boundary 88

Grain Boundary: tilt and twist One grain orientation can be obtained by rotation of another grain about an axis through an angle If the axis of rotation lies in the boundary plane it is called a tilt boundary If the angle of rotation is perpendicular to the boundary plane it is called a twist boundary 89
