Imperfections or Defects in Solids

Imperfections or Defects in Solids: At absolute zero, crystals have a perfectly ordered arrangement that corresponds to minimum energy. With the increase in temperature, the chances of a lattice site being remained unoccupied by the particle increases thereby causing a deviation from the perfectly ordered arrangement. Any deviation from a perfectly ordered arrangement is known as …
