Saturation of Point Defects

- An Online Book -  

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


The clustering of vacancies into dislocation loops may occur when point defects become supersaturated. The saturation of point defects can be induced by many ways such as high-energy-particle irradiation, plastic deformation, or thermal quenching [1 - 6].
