What Happens When AgCl Is Doped With CdCl2. What Is The Name Of This Defect?

When Silver chloride (AgCl) is doped with Cadmium chloride (CdCl2), two Silver chloride ions (Ag) are replaced by one Cadmium ion(Cd+2).

Later the Cadmium ion (Cd+2) occupies the site of one of the Silver ions (Ag+) and a cation vacancy is created at the site of the other Ag +ion.

This defect is known as a cation vacancy defect.
