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.
