The conditions of formation and the main characteristics of local vibrations due to the presence of light impurities Al, Mg, and Mn in the bulk and on the close-packed [111] surface of the fcc crystal lattice of silver are investigated. The influence of surface roughness is analyzed. Analytical approximations are obtained which describe the frequency and intensity of the local vibrations at the impurity atom and its nearest neighborhood to high accuracy. The proposed analytical approximations provide a practical way of determining the parameters of the defect structure and the interatomic interactions from the experimentally determined characteristics of the local vibrations.
