In this paper, a combination of quantum mechanical and interatomic potential-based atomistic calculations are used to predict the core structures of screw and edge dislocations in tungsten in the presence of a particular concentration of hydrogen atoms. These configurations of the core structures are the results of two competing energies: the interaction between the partial dislocations and the corresponding generalized stacking fault energy in between the two partial dislocations, which are presented in this work. With this, we can precisely predict the configurations of the hydrogen-doped dislocation core structures. (C) 2017 Published by Elsevier B.V.
