Description: The phenomena of grain boundary diffusion and grain boundary segregation play major roles in determining the properties and behavior of a wide variety of materials. Even though the basic principles have been known for a long time, the field continues to yield a number of very challenging questions.

Description: These proceedings comprise the papers presented at the international conference on 'Diffusion in Materials (DIMAT-96)' held at Schloss Nordkirchen, Germany, August 1996 - the largest international diffusion conference so far held. The two-volume set therefore covers a very broad spectrum of topics. From the materials point of view, metals, alloys, intermetallics, elemental and compound semiconductors, amorphous materials, nonmetals such as fast ionic conductors, oxides, nitrides, polymers and even melts were discussed.
