    Research outputpeer-review


    We study the sink strength for three-dimensionally (3D) versus one-dimensionally (1D), or mixed 1D/3D, migrating defects in the case of an ordered array of straight dislocations , using object kinetic Monte Carlo (OKMC) techniques. We show that the “master curve” approach, that describes the sink strength transition from fully 3D to purely 1D migration regime, is extendable to dislocations, although further theoretical developments are required.
