Planar Defects on (112) in BCC Crystals


Article Preview

The parameters of exponential many-body Finnis-Sinclair potentials corresponding to qualitatively different crystal lattice stability were selected and their behaviour was studied. Furthermore, a model with pairwise Lennard-Jones potential was also considered. The attention was paid to the stability of different crystal structures and the properties of simple interfaces such as stacking faults and twin boundaries were investigated.
