Building Kroger-Vink diagram

  1. Oct 28, 2015 #1

    I am curently studying the insights of building a Brouwer (Kroger-Vink) diagram for a specific doped material.

    For example: Al2O3 doped with MgO will result in:

    Al2O3 + MgO

    MgAl' + Ali... + OOx + 2VO..

    I am trying to figure out how to build the diagram based on this doping reaction, log (defect concentration) vs log (oxygen partial pressure)

    Hopefuly, I've been explicit enough.

    Thanks for the post! This is an automated courtesy bump. Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post?

    I managed to get it done eventually, I had to play with equilibrum constants (Ks - schotky, Ki - intrinsic electronic defects...).
