Аннотация лекции

Grain boundaries and interfaces of crystals have peculiar electronic structures, caused by the disorder in periodicity, providing the functional properties, which cannot be observed in a perfect crystal. In the vicinity of the grain boundaries and interfaces, dopants or impurities are often segregated, and they play a crucial role in the material properties. We call these dopants “function providing elements”, which have the characteristics to change the macroscopic properties of the materials drastically. In this study, the results obtained by Cs (spherical aberration) corrected HAADF STEM are demonstrated for well-defined grain boundaries and interfaces in oxide materials. On the other hand, such materials are composed of light elements, and light elements in the GB structural units play a crucial role in the material properties. Recently we have reported that annular bright field (ABF) STEM imaging is very powerful technique to produce images showing both light and heavy element columns simultaneously. In this study, crystal structures and GB atomic structures including light elements in several oxides such as CeO2, Al2O3 and lithium battery materials are directly observed by ABF STEM.
