Correlation Effects in Ionic Transport Processes

  • A. D. Le Claire
Part of the Materials Science Research book series (MSR, volume 9)


“Correlation Effects” in diffusion and other mass transport phenomena were first discussed for solids by Bardeen and Herring [1] in 1951, although similar phenomena had been recognized as occurring in neutron diffusion as previously as 1936 [2] and in gases even earlier [3]. The effects derive from the fact that, in the nature of the defect processes by which atoms migrate in solids, the direction of any atom displacement is not at random but is influenced in part by the directions in which the previous and earlier jumps of that atom occurred. That is to say, successive jump directions are correlated with one another [4].
