|Title:||Temperature effects on dislocation core energies in silicon and germanium|
|Author:||Miranda, Caetano R.|

|Abstract:||Temperature effects on the energetics of the 90° partial dislocation in silicon and germanium are investigated, using nonequilibrium methods to estimate free energies, coupled with Monte Carlo simulations. Atomic interactions are described by Tersoff and environment-dependent interatomic potentials. Our results indicate that the vibrational entropy has the effect of increasing the difference in free energy between the two possible reconstructions of the 90° partial, namely, the single-period and the double-period geometries. This effect further increases the energetic stability of the double-period reconstruction at high temperatures. The results also indicate that anharmonic effects may play an important role in determining the structural properties of these defects in the high-temperature regime.|
