Premelting generation of interstitial defects in polycrystalline indium
EV Goncharova and AS Makarov and RA Konchakov and NP Kobelev and VA Khonik, JETP LETTERS, 106, 35-39 (2017).
High-precision measurements of the shear modulus of polycrystalline indium from room temperature to the melting temperature T (m) and molecular statics computer simulation have been performed. It has been found that interstitial defects are intensely generated near T (m) in a dumbbell (split) configuration and their concentration can exceed the concentration of vacancies.
