Positron studies of metals

  • Werner Triftshäuser
Chapter
Part of the Advances in Solid State Physics book series (ASSP, volume 15)

Abstract

The positron annihilation method and its experimental techniques are reviewed. With these techniques information is obtained about electron states in perfect crystals and about defects in real metals. The advantage of the positron annihilation method is outlined for the investigation of Fermi surfaces in disordered metal systems. The sensitivity of the technique for single vacancies and defect clusters is demonstrated with recent results on various metals. Vacancy formation energies can be obtained with high accuracy. In addition to the concentration of defects, information is obtained about the type of these defect centers. This opens new possibilities in annealing studies of irradiated metals to decide between various recovery models.
