Part of the Materials Science Research book series (MSR, volume 14)


Grain boundary migration rates measured in doped and undoped LiF depend significantly on one or more impurities. The mobilities for alkali halides are interpreted in terms of solute drag theory. The variability and driving force dependence of the mobility are attributed to transitions between mobility regimes controlled by intrinsic drag or drag due to one or more solutes.
