Hydrogen-induced change in core structures of {110}[111] edge and {110}[111] screw dislocations in iron

Abstract

Employing the empirical embedded-atom method potentials, the evolution of edge and screw dislocation core structure is calculated at different hydrogen concentrations. With hydrogen, the core energy and Peierls potential are reduced for all dislocations. A broaden-core and a quasi-split core structure are observed for edge and screw dislocation respectively. The screw dislocation and hydrogen interaction in body-centred cubic iron is found to be not mainly due to the change of elastic modulus, but the variation of dislocation core structure.
