Diffusion of tritium in intermetallic compound $$beta$$-LiAl; Relation to the defect structure

Sugai, Hiroyuki

The diffusion coefficient and its activation energy (116.3 $$pm$$ 11.7 kJ/mol) of tritium in an intermetallic compound $$beta$$-LiAl are determined at temperatures from 700 to 848 K. Though the present result for the diffusion coefficient is almost the same as that reported previously, the present result for the activation energy turns out nearly twice of that (64.9 $$pm$$ 3.8 kJ/mol). The present result for the activation energy is consistent with the systematics that an increase of lithium concentration in Al-Li systems increases the activation energy, but the previous result is not. Furthermore, a consideration of the crystal structure and defect structure suggests that tritium diffuses and is impeded by the attractive interaction with lithium atom at lithium sublattices.
