Formation of F-Centres

  1. Jul 28, 2008 #1
    Hi folks, I've recently been studying point defects, but I can't seem to come across how the formation of f-centres actually affects the density of a crystal.

    Does it increase or decrease the density?

    Thanks for any help/ ponters

    It follows directly from the definition. What is an F-center?
