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.
Description: The present textbook treats the effects of temperature upon weakly disordered hydrogenated amorphous silicon and hydrogenated amorphous germanium, as well as the effect of weak disorder upon more complex systems such as GaAs and Al2Gal-xAs alloy. The effects of disorder-induced band tailing upon deep levels in compound semiconductor alloys are also studied.
Description: The problem of the interrelationship between diffusion and stresses is as old as the investigation of diffusion itself. Crack formation during surface oxidation, stress-induced diffusion (creep, Gorsky-effect) and the macroscopic deformation of diffusion couples during interdiffusion are well-known classical examples.
