Abstract

Many point defects are subject to lattice distortion, i.e., the atoms in their neighborhood are displaced with respect to their perfect crystal positions. As a consequence the point-group symmetry is often lowered and this can be observed directly in different experiments such as Electron Paramagnetic Resonance (EPR) (Chap.3) and optical absorption (Chap.4).
