Unformatted text preview: 1/28/2011 1 Chapter 5 - 1 ISSUES TO ADDRESS... How does diffusion occur? Why is it an important part of processing? How can the rate of diffusion be predicted for some simple cases? How does diffusion depend on structure and temperature? Chapter 5: Diffusion in Solids Chapter 5 - 2 Diffusion Diffusion- Mass transport by atomic motion Mechanisms Gases & Liquids random (Brownian) motion Solids vacancy diffusion or interstitial diffusion 1/28/2011 2 Chapter 5 - 3 Interdiffusion : In an alloy, atoms tend to migrate from regions of high conc. to regions of low conc. Initially Adapted from Figs. 5.1 and 5.2, Callister 7e . Diffusion After some time Cu Ni Chapter 5 - 4 Self-diffusion : In an elemental solid, atoms also migrate. Label some atoms After some time Diffusion A B C D A B C D Diffusion is just a stepwise migration of atoms from lattice site to lattice site. There must be an empty adjacent site. The atom must have sufficient energy to break bonds with its neighbor atoms and them cause some lattice distortion during the displacement. 1/28/2011 3 Chapter 5 - 5 Diffusion Mechanisms Vacancy Diffusion: atoms exchange with vacancies applies to substitutional impurities atoms rate depends on:--number of vacancies--activation energy to exchange. increasing elapsed time Chapter 5 - 6 Simulation of interdiffusion across an interface: Rate of substitutional diffusion depends on:--vacancy concentration--frequency of jumping.

More rapid than vacancy diffusion Adapted from Fig. 5.3 (b), Callister 7e . Chapter 5 - 8 Adapted from chapter-opening photograph, Chapter 5, Callister 7e. (Courtesy of Surface Division, Midland-Ross.) Case Hardening :--Diffuse carbon atoms into the host iron atoms at the surface.--Example of interstitial diffusion is a case hardened gear. Result: The presence of C atoms makes iron (steel) harder. Processing Using Diffusion 1/28/2011 5 Chapter 5 - 9 Doping silicon with phosphorus for n-type semiconductors: Process: 3. Result: Doped semiconductor regions....
