Q 21. Schottky defect in crystals is observed when

A

Density of the crystal is increased

B

Unequal number of cations and anions are missing from the lattice

C

An ion leaves its normal site and occupies an interstitial site

Equal number of cations and anions are missing from the lattice.

Explanation

In ionic crystals, the defect forms when oppositely charged ions leave their lattice sites, creating vacancies. These vacancies are formed in stoichiometric units, to maintain an overall neutral charge in the ionic solid. The surrounding atoms then move to fill these vacancies, causing new vacancies to form. Normally these defects will lead to a decrease in the density of the crystal.
