Figure 3

(a) Schematic representation of the intrinsic and extrinsic stacking faults in terms of the A/B/C atomic layer stacking, as well as the single and double kinking (faults) along the close-packed direction of <110>. (b) {110} cross-section of a dislocation-originated SFT, with atoms coloured by their coordination numbers. (c) Same as (b) except for a vacancy-originated SFT formed via the Silcox–Hirsch mechanism.
