Electronic Properties of Dislocations


Article Preview

Dislocations are one-dimensional crystal defects. Their dimension characterize the defects as nanostructures (nanowires). Measurements on defined dislocation arrays proved numerous exceptional electronic properties. A model of dislocations as quantum wires is proposed. The formation of the quantum wire is a consequence of the high strain level on the dislocation core modi-fying locally the band structure.
