Diffusion of Titanium and Nickel in B2 NiTi

Abstract:

Article Preview

Diffusion of both titanium and nickel was measured in the near stoichiometric Ni-49.4at.%Ti alloy with the B2 ordered structure. The radiotracer technique and the 44Ti and 63Ni isotopes were applied in the temperature interval from 900 to 1300 K. The penetration profiles were determined by precision parallel grinding or by ion beam sputtering at larger and smaller penetration depths, respectively. Titanium and nickel diffusivities were found to follow linear Arrhenius dependencies with the pre-exponential factors of 2.710-7 and 4.710-9 m2/s and the activation enthalpies of 205 and 143 kJ/mol, respectively. A vacancy mediated diffusion mechanism is suggested to provide diffusion of both nickel and titanium in the compound NiTi.
