Joint diffusion in interstitial solutions

  • 19 Accesses


Within the framework of the simplest model of a two-component solid solution the article examines the dependence of the diffusion fluxes of implanted substances on their concentration and on the inhomogeneity of the lattice composition. It is shown that cross effects lead to contributions that are comparable in magnitude to the principal fluxes.
