Elastic Dipoles in the Model of Single-Crystal and Amorphous Copper
RA Konchakov and NP Kobelev and VA Khonik and AS Makarov, PHYSICS OF THE SOLID STATE, 58, 215-222 (2016).
The characteristic values of the elastic polarizability tensor components of point defects in crystalline and amorphous copper, which determine changes in the elasticity tensor components upon introduction of defects, have been found using the molecular dynamics method. A relation of the elastic polarizability tensor with the main parameter of the interstitialcy theory, i. e., shear susceptibility, has been established. An analysis of the elastic polarizability tensors of defects in crystalline and amorphous copper has demonstrated that, in a noncrystalline structure, there are specific atomic configurations that under deformation manifest themselves similarly to elastic dipoles (interstitial atoms in a dumbbell configuration) in single-crystal copper.
