Abstract

A technique has been developed to study the dissolution kinetics at dislocation sites in sodium chloride single crystals. A parallel beam of light is allowed to fall upon the silvered etched surface of the crystals and the reflected beam is received back on a photographic film. The pattern thus obtained on the photographic film gives information about (i) the structure of the etched surface (ii) the nature of the surface forming the pit and (iii) the slope of the pit at the source of dissolution.
