Misfit vs Edge Dislocation

  1. Jan 21, 2014 #1
    Referring to the following journal by R. Hao et. al., J. Cryst. Growth, 337, 81, (2011):
    From this sentence, a misfit dislocation is implicitly defined as "a single extra half plane". It seems that this definition fits the description of edge dislocation found in most text books. Is this correct or am I confused?

    Thank you
