Cu GB Diffusion in Al. Effect of Alloying by Cu and Ce
The diffusion of Cu in Al and Al based alloys was studied. It was shown the great scattering of triple product values, measured for different grain boundaries (GB) at the same samples. It was discussed in the terms of GB energy difference. It was also shown that GB triple product can be varied significantly by preliminary alloying of Al by 0.1% Cu. However, the alloying of Al by 0.5% Cu leads to disappearing of the effect of accelerated diffusion in GB in comparison with the bulk.
