Nonequilibrium Vacancies in Nanosystems
The influence of nonequilibrium vacancy distribution, generated by a difference of intrinsic fluxes of components under limited efficiency of vacancy sinks/sources, on various diffusion processes, is analyzed. Interdiffusion, reactive diffusion, reactive phase growth under electric current, spinodal decomposition, collapse of compound nanoshells, ripening are considered.
