Equilibrium Unstable Point Defects in Solids

Abstract

It is shown that in addition to Frenkel’s and Schottky’s defects there is another type of equilibrium defects, such as an unstable pairs (UP): vacancy and interstitial atom. UP has the life time of the order of 10−10 10−12s, independent of temperature. The review of the unstable pairs physics is presented. Numerous experimental evidences of equilibrium UP in semiconductors, insulators, especially in superionic crystals, and metals are discussed.
