The contribution made by lattice vacancies to the Wigner effect in radiation-damaged graphite.


Models for radiation damage in graphite are reviewed and compared, leading to a re-examination of the contribution made by vacancies to annealing processes. A method based on density functional theory, using large supercells with orthorhombic and hexagonal symmetry, is employed to calculate the properties and behaviour of lattice vacancies and displacement… (More)
