Temperature Effects on Diffusion



Substitutional - vacancy

Temperature  K

In this simulation, the temperature, T, and the movement frequency, ν, are related by

\[\nu \propto \exp \left( -{\frac{1}{T}} \right)\]

Also, at higher temperatures, the vacancy concentration is higher

Interstitial

Temperature  K

In this simulation, the temperature, T, and the movement frequency, ν, are related by

\[\nu \propto \exp \left( -{\frac{1}{T}} \right)\]
