As ion implantation becomes more widely used in the process of material modification, and as a tool in all branches of physics, it becomes important to determine and understand the new atomic system that is formed. One item of basic and fundamental interest is the atomic position of the implanted impurity in the lattice. Along with the radiation damage created, this property will determine the final microscopic and macroscopic properties of the implanted material. Ideally, a simple set of rules is desired, similar to the Hume-Rothery rules in alloying theory, to specify the lattice location. Although such a goal is far from realization, certain trends have been established from which to gain insight. This paper discusses whst has been learned on the lattice location question.
