Amplitude dependence of the internal friction of alkali-halide crystals in an electric field

  • 17 Accesses


The influence of an electrical field on the internal friction of an alkali-halide crystal (AHC) was investigated for relative deformation amplitudes corresponding to separation of dislocations from fastening centers, and for higher amplitudes when plastic deformation of the specimen occurs in an ultrasonic wave field. The influence of the electrical field in the deformation domain under consideration reduces to direct action on charged dislocations, re-orientation of dipole fastening centers, and activation of sources in block boundaries.
