Introducing Edge Dislocation in HCP Structure

Hi Everyone,

I want to introduce edge dislocation in a HCP structure. But I do not know how to introduce edge dislocation at the beginning. It would be a grate help, if someone can give me an idea how to do that.

Thanks in advance.


Edge dislocation is missing half of a plane of atoms. Therefore construct a HCP structure, group half of the atoms in a particular plane, then delete them.


Hi Ray,

Thank you for your help.

​If I am not wrong​ is this the one, that you were talking about?
