Diffusion & Transport 18

a balance or equality is established. This tendency is often referred to as the driving force,

which is the mechanism behind many naturally occurring transport phenomena.

redistribution, and thus the flow is a diffusion

process. The rate of flow of the commodity is

proportional to the concentration gradient dC/dx,

which is the change in the concentration C per unit

length in the flow direction x, and the area A normal

to flow direction.

kdiff is the diffusion coefficient of the medium, which is a measure of how fast a commodity diffuses

in the medium, and the negative sign is to make the flow in the positive direction a positive

quantity (note that dC/dx is a negative quantity since concentration decreases in the flow

direction).

P.Ravindran, PHY085 Properties of Materials, 2014 February: Diffusion and Ficks law

19

The diffusion coefficients and thus diffusion rates of gases depend strongly on

temperature.

The diffusion rates are higher at higher temperatures.

The larger the molecular spacing, the higher the diffusion rate.

Diffusion rate: gases > liquids > solids

effort by simply drawing parallels between heat and mass transfer.

Temperature

The driving force for mass transfer is

the concentration difference.

Both heat and mass are transferred

from the more concentrated regions to

the less concentrated ones.

If there is no difference between the

concentrations of a species at different

parts of a medium, there will be no

mass transfer.

slows down. Thats why you stir your coffee after adding

cream. Diffusion doesnt work fast enough over long distances.

rough, there is a huge variation, high accuracy is not

very much, it is difficult to control it.

dislocation climb due to capturing vacancies

P.Ravindran, PHY085 Properties of Materials, 2014 February: Diffusion and Ficks law

56

More open, diffusion can take place faster. In fact, dislocations provide

routes for fast diffusion also. Diffusion in grain boundaries makes

predicting the behavior of polycrystals difficult.

Activation energy is lowest for surface diffusion, larger for grain

boundary diffusion, and the highest for bulk diffusion. Therefore, bulk

diffusion dominates at high temperature (larger number of possible

sites) but grain boundary and surface diffusion takes over at lower

temperature.

Technological importance: Thin film deposition, weakening of grain

boundaries by impurities, shape changes of particles, etc.

Diffusion can be accelerated by introducing grain boundaries and other

lattice defects. This is an important benefit from MA (mechanical

alloying).

Example: Non-Steady-State Diffusion

FCC iron-carbon alloy initially containing 0.20 wt% C is carburized at an elevated

temperature and in an atmosphere that gives a surface C content at 1.0 wt%.

If after 49.5 h the concentration of carbon is 0.35 wt% at a position 4.0 mm below

the surface, what temperature was treatment done?

Solution

C( x, t ) Co 0.35 0.20 x

1 erf 1 erf ( z ) erf(z) = 0.8125

Cs Co 1.0 0.20 2 Dt

Using Table 6.1 find z where erf(z) = 0.8125. Use interpolation. z erf(z)

0.90 0.7970

z 0.90 0.8125 0.7970 z 0.8125

So, z = 0.93

Solution (cont.):

To solve for the temperature at which D Qd

has the above value, we use a T

D=D0 exp(-Qd/RT)

Example: Processing 77

10 hours processed at 600 C gives desired C(x).

How many hours needed to get the same C(x) at 500 C?

FCC Fe has both higher activation energy EACT and D0 (holes larger in FCC).

BCC and FCC phase exist over limited range of T (at varying %C).

Hence, at same T, BCC diffuses faster due to lower EACT.

Cannot always have the phase that you want at the %C and T you want!

which is why this is all important.

slow diffusers (As, Sb)

As we develop shallow junction devices, slow

diffusers are becoming very important

B is the only p-type dopant that has a high

solubility; therefore, it is very hard to make

shallow p-type junctions with this fast diffuser
