Modeling Diffusion: Flux Flux (#/area/time) : J = 1 A dM dt kg m 2 s or atoms m 2 s • Directional Quantity • Flux can be measured for: --vacancies and interstitials --host (A) atoms --impurity (B) atoms J x J y J z x y z x-direction Unit area A through which atoms move.

Non Steady State Diffusion • Concentration profile, C(x), changes w/ time. • To conserve matter: • Fick's First Law: • Governing Eqn.: Concentration, C, in the box J (right) J (left) dx d C dt = D d 2 C dx 2 dx = d C dt J =− D d C dx or J (left) J (right) d J dx = d C dt d J dx = D d 2 C dx 2 (if D does not vary with x) equate
Ex: Non Steady State Diffusion • Copper diffuses into a bar of aluminum. • General solution: "error function" Values calibrated in Table 5.1, Callister 6e. C( x , t ) C o C s C o = 1 erf x 2 D t pre-existing conc., C o of copper atoms Surface conc., C s of Cu atoms bar C o C s position, x C( x , t ) t o t 1 t 2 t 3 Adapted from Fig. 5.5, Callister 6e .

Example of Diffusion Studies: Using Secondary Ion Mass Spectroscopy Measure secondary ions in mass spectrometer Incident sputter ions e.g. O 2+ , Cs + , Ar + , Ga + Breaks bonds Sputters sample Measure: Secondary ions
Example: SIMS Study of Self-Diffusion Natural GaSb 69 Ga 121 Sb 71 Ga 123 Sb As-grown Annealed 105 min Annealed 18 days Natural isotope abundance Ga: 69 Ga (60.1%) and 71 Ga (39.9%) Sb: 121 Sb (57.4%) and 123 Sb (42.6%) Which diffuses faster: Ga or Sb? Why?

The Solubility Limit Solubility Limit : Max concentration for which only a solution occurs. • Ex: Phase Diagram: Water-Sugar System Question: What is the solubility limit at 20 °C ? Answer: 65 wt% sugar . If C o < 65 wt% sugar: sugar If C o > 65 wt% sugar: syrup + sugar. • Solubility limit increases with T: e.g., if T = 100 °C, solubility limit = 80wt% sugar.
