Non-linear Effects in Diffusion on Nanoscale Department of Solid State Physics University of Debrecen D.L. Beke Z. Erdélyi, I.A. Szabó, Cs. Cserháti

Diffusion in nanomaterials Two important features a) High numbers of grain- or phase boundaries (GB or PB) and dislocations - fast diffusion and solid st. reactions, segregation, etc. b) Principal problems (very short distances and preferably no structural defects)

Principal difficulties: -Short diffusion distances L  d (continuum description fails) - Gradient energy corrections - Stress effects

Conclusions (ideal systems): -At short distances the continuum descriptions fails and this strongly depends on the concentration dependence of D (non-linearity) - Non-linearity leads to shift of a sharp interface -The non-linearity leads to a linear shift of a sharp interface sharpening of an originally wide interface -Gradient energy corrections are important not only in the currents but also in the mobilities
