Abstract:

Previous investigations studied the diffusion of nickel into copper bicrystals, while the present experiments have been concerned with the diffusion of gold into copper bicrystals. The theoretical solutions and approximations were evaluated mathematically and the results used for the analysis of the experimental data. The case of surface diffusion in metal systems is comparable to that of grain-boundary diffusion in that both involve concomitant volume diffusion. Therefore experimental and theoretical studies of surface diffusion were initiated as an extension of those on grain-boundary diffusion.
