By Professor Dr. Alexander A. Chernov (auth.)

Early during this century, the newly came across x-ray diffraction via crystals made a whole swap in crystallography and within the complete technology of the atomic constitution of topic, hence giving a brand new impetus to the improvement of solid-state physics. Crystallographic tools, pri­ marily x-ray diffraction research, penetrated into fabrics sciences, mol­ ecular physics, and chemistry, and in addition into many different branches of technology. Later, electron and neutron diffraction constitution analyses be­ got here vital because they not just supplement x-ray information, but additionally provide new info at the atomic and the true constitution of crystals. Electron microscopy and different sleek equipment of investigating mat­ ter-optical, digital paramagnetic, nuclear magnetic, and different res­ onance techniques-yield a large number of details at the atomic, digital, and actual crystal constructions. Crystal physics has additionally passed through lively improvement. Many re­ markable phenomena were found in crystals after which stumbled on quite a few useful functions. different very important components selling the advance of crystallog­ raphy have been the elaboration of the idea of crystal development (which introduced crystallography in the direction of thermodynamics and actual chem­ istry) and the advance of many of the equipment of becoming man made crystals dictated by way of functional wishes. Man-made crystals turned increas­ ingly very important for actual investigations, and so they swiftly invaded know-how. The creation . of artificial crystals made an enormous impression at the conventional branches: the mechanical remedy of mate­ rials, precision software making, and the jewellery industry.

As we shall see in the next section, these shallow minima disappear altogether because of the thermal fluctuations of the steps at T > O. 1 Surface Configurations and Their Energies The surface of a perfect crystal at T > 0 is schematically represented in Fig. 7 for a simple cubic lattice. In contrast to Fig. 5, the step is not straight here: atoms or molecules may leave the step end face (as well as the surface layer) because of thermal motion, and shift either into the environment or onto the surface, into one of the surface states with a different number of bonds with the lattice.

Then the growth of the sphere will be advantageous and must continue. Otherwise the size of the sphere must reduce. oN. M will stand for the chemical potentials of phases of sufficiently large volume, which are independent of effects associated with the presence of the phase boundary. 38 1. tO. M - p's = 2DajR . 34), which is called the Gibbs-Thomson equation, defines the shift of phase equilibrium at the spherical interface.

In one of them we define the roughness as the ratio (U - Uo)/Uo, where U is the total surface energy at a given temperature, and Uothat at a temperature T = o. In the nearest-neighbor-interaction model, the roughness is simply the ratio between the number of unsaturated bonds "parallel" to the close-packed xy face (see Fig. 7) and the total number of bonds "normal" to this face. , are located at different z levels. In other words, each uncompensated horizontal bond corresponds to a unit jump (a jump one interatomic distance high) of the z level between the above-mentioned neighboring atoms of the surface.
