About Fe Diffusion in Cu
The temperature dependence of the bulk diffusion coefficient of Fe in Cu is determined by EDX in the temperature range from 923 to 1273 K, , m2/s. These results are different from that obtained earlier by radiotracer technique: activation energy is less by 30 kJ/mol and pre-exponential factor is 50 times smaller. Deviations from ideality of investigated solutions do not explain the differences; consequently, the thermodynamical factor would not responsible for such an effect. Fast grain boundary diffusion of Fe in Cu was not observed in the temperature range from 823 to 1073 K.
