Formulation of Impurity-Vacancy Pair Formation Energy in Fast Diffusion
In fast diffusion, the impurity diffusion coefficient is much greater than the self-diffusion coefficient. The pair mechanism is here considered to explain fast diffusion. Formulations for the formation of the pair are based upon pseudopotential theory.
