Abstract

Widely extended, cation stacking faults in experimentally deformed Mg2GeO4 spinel have been studied using transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The faults lie on {110} planes. The displacement vector is of the form {Mathematical expression} and is normal to the fault plane. The partial dislocations which bound the stacking fault have colinear Burgers vectors of the form {Mathematical expression} which are normal to the fault plane.
