A Study Of The Diffusion Of Electroplated Coatings In The Solid State., Michael R. Writt

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The term diffusion means an equalization or homogenization of diverse materials. Specifically apĀ­plied to metals, diffusion is the interchange of atoms. It is, in effect, an invasion of one crystal lattice by the atoms of one or more other crystal lattices. Therefore, the study of diffusion must involve the geometry and physics of crystal lattices as well as their energies.
