Interface between Two Crystals

This book (Practical Electron Microscopy and Database) is a reference for TEM and SEM students, operators, engineers, technicians, managers, and researchers.



Regarding the interface between two crystals, the dependence of interfacial properties on crystallographic parameters is more complex than for surfaces, because the interfacial phenomena vary with not only the orientation of the interface but also the orientation relationship between the two crystals.

Much less is known about the behavior of interfaces than that of surfaces because experimental techniques for the study of interfaces are much more limited than for surfaces. At interfaces, atomic relaxation can take a number of different forms, including elemental segregation, formation of particles, emission of partial dislocations [1] and formation of extended structures, or dissociation [2–4].
