Relation between the fine structure of dislocations and the crystal structure

Severin Amelinckx

    Research outputpeer-review


    The detailed structure of dislocations reflects the crystal structure especially if the Burgers vector becomes large, which is likely to be the case in relatively complicated crystals. The dissociation of dislocations into ribbons of stacking faults is most easily observed in layer structures because the glide planes are then parallel to the plane of observation in electron microscopy. For a number of
    layer structures striking combinations of stacking fault ribbons and dislocations, which can readily be interpreted on the basis of the crystal structure, have been observed. Ribbons consisting of two, four and six partials are discussed in relation with the structures of tin disulphide, talc and the chromium halides respectively. The observation of ribbons allows to deduce values for the stacking fault energy.
