Charged dislocations in sodium chloride single crystals

    Research outputpeer-review


    The occurrence of electrical signals at the surfaces of oscillating NaCI single crystals is shown to he connected with the breakaway of dislocations from weak pinning points- Assuming that these pinning points are positive ion vacancies, their binding energy for dislocations is found to be 0,36 eV. The charge on the dislocations is found to be positive between 80°K and 370°K.
