The introduction of a prismatic dislocation loop in the interface of an axisymmetric precipitate embedded in a thin slab of infinite lateral extension has been theoretically investigated. The critical misfit strain resulting from the lattice mismatch between the inclusion and the slab has been characterized for the loop formation versus the thickness of the slab and the radius of the inclusion. The case where the precipitate is embedded in a semi-infinite matrix is also discussed and a stability diagram of the structure is displayed with respect to the loop introduction versus the geometric and misfit parameters.

An axisymmetric precipitate of radius R is embedded in a thin slab of thickness h. The elastic coefficients of both phases are equal. A prismatic dislocation loop of Burgers vector (0, 0, b) is located in the interface between the inclusion and the slab at a distance d from the upper free-surface.

Total energy variation ΔẼtot versus the loop distance from the upper free-surface d̃ for different values of the misfit strain parameter ε*ν. For ε*ν=0.001, ΔẼtot is positive for all d̃ values. A minimum in energy is observed when the loop is emitted in the interface at d = h/2 for ε*ν=0.006. ΔẼtot cancels at d = h/2 when the misfit parameter reaches a critical value ε*ν,c=0.01196. For ε*ν=0.015 > ε*ν,c, the formation of the interface dislocation loop should occur in the horizontal plane of symmetry of the structure.

Total energy variation ΔẼtot versus the distance d̃ between the loop and the free-surface in the case of a semi-infinite matrix and for different values of the misfit parameter ε*ν. For ε*ν=0.002, ΔẼtot is positive. For ε*ν=0.008, ΔẼtot is negative for d̃ > 92 and the introduction of the loop is favorable.
