Diffusion Material transport by atomic motion. Within the same metal: high to low concentration (self-diffusion) Between two metals ( interdiffusion or impurity diffusion)

Diffusion Mechanisms For atoms to move from one position to another two conditions have to be met: 1. Empty site next to the diffusing atom 2. Diffusing atom has enough energy to move Temperature can dramatically increase the diffusion energy Two dominate mechanisms for metallic diffusion: 1. Vacancy Diffusion 2. Interstitial Diffusion

Vacancy Diffusion Atoms in a normal site moves to a vacant lattice site There has to be a vacancy In metals more vacancies exists at higher temperature Could be self or inter diffusion
