Abstract:

An etching technique for revealing dislocations in high purity Zn single crystals without the addition of solute impurities was developed. The technique involves surface doping prior to chemical polishing. Evidence for a one to one correspondence between etch figures and dislocations is presented, together with some preliminary observations of slip on 0001 basal and 1212 pyramidal planes and twinning in Zn.
