Anatomy of screw dislocations in nanoporous SAPO-18 as revealed by atomic force microscopy

Abstract

Defects in solids are often the source of functional activity, the trigger for crystal growth and the seat of instability. Screw dislocations are notoriously difficult to study by electron microscopy. Here we decipher the complex anatomy of one such defect in the industrially important nanoporous catalyst SAPO-18 by atomic force microscopy.
