2017 MIT Student Projects


This project explores the nature of defects by examining how the energy of atoms change in the presence of various types of defects with a focus on screw dislocations in cubic of hexagonal close packed lattice configurations. The energy of atoms was modeled using Lennard-Jones functions.
