  • An apparatus was developed which permits the concentration of a radioactive component to be followed during the diffusion process as a function of time by measurement of the gamma radiation beam scattered at a fixed point of the sample. By maintenance of the boundary conditions applied in monitoring methods, the self-diffusion coefficient of tin could be determined above the melting point in dependence on the temperature by using radiochemically purified Sn/sup 113///sup 125/. Comparison with measurements which were carried out by other methods shows that the apparatus described for the measurement of self- dlffusion coefficients by the use of gammamore » -emitting isotopes is suitable for liquid metals.

  • Cobalt(II) hydroxide is added to the active mass of the nickel oxide electrodes in alkaline storage batteries as an activator. To eliminate the problem of self-discharge, the authors determined the diffusion coefficients of the cobalt(II) hydroxide complexes in 2, 5, 8.1, 10, and 12 N KOH solutions with the aid of a rotating disk electrode following the method of Hitchman and Albery. Polarization curves for the cathodic reduction and anodic oxidation of cobalt(II) hydroxo complexes in 5 N KOH solutions saturated in cobalt(II) hydroxide are shown. Data for the diffusion coefficients of cadmium and mercury hydroxo complexes obtained in KOHmore » solutions of different concentrations are shown in comparison with that of the cobalt(II) hydroxo complexes.« less
  • Molecular dynamic simulations on the liquid copper and tungsten are used to investigate the empirical entropy-scaling laws D{sup *}=A exp(BS{sub ex}), proposed independently by Rosenfeld and Dzugutov for diffusion coefficient, under high pressure conditions. We show that the scaling laws hold rather well for them under high pressure conditions. Furthermore, both the original diffusion coefficients and the reduced diffusion coefficients exhibit an Arrhenius relationship D{sub M}=D{sub M}{sup 0} exp(−E{sub M}/K{sub B}T), (M=un,R,D) and the activation energy E{sub M} increases with increasing pressure, the diffusion pre-exponential factors (D{sub R}{sup 0} and D{sub D}{sup 0}) are nearly independent of the pressure and element. Themore » pair correlation entropy, S{sub 2}, depends linearly on the reciprocal temperature S{sub 2}=−E{sub S}/T, and the activation energy, E{sub S}, increases with increasing pressure. In particular, the ratios of the activation energies (E{sub un}, E{sub R}, and E{sub D}) obtained from diffusion coefficients to the activation energy, E{sub S}, obtained from the entropy keep constants in the whole pressure range. Therefore, the entropy-scaling laws for the diffusion coefficients and the Arrhenius law are linked via the temperature dependence of entropy.« less
