Atomic Defects in Metals · K

Abstract

This chapter discusses properties and interactions of atomic defects in bcc metals like potassium (K). Considerable progress in the evaluation of defect results have been obtained by resistivity results following electron irradiation and neutron irradiation indicating free migration of self-interstitial atoms (SIAs). In doped specimens detrapping stages for SIA’s and vacancies have been noted. Properties of Frenkel defects, SIAs, and vacancies in potassium are tabulated. Resistivity recovery of electron-irradiated potassium, resistivity recovery of neutron-irradiated potassium, and resistivity recovery of potassium following plastic deformation near 4K are illustrated in the figures.
