We have developed a nanoscale diffusion measurement method using an $$alpha$$-emitting radioactive $$^{8}$$Li tracer. In this method, while implanting a pulsed 8 keV $$^{8}$$Li beam, the $$alpha$$ particles emitted at a small angle (10$$^{circ}$$) relative to the sample surface were detected as a function of time. The method has been successfully applied to measuring lithium diffusion coefficients for an amorphous Li$$_{4}$$SiO$$_{4}$$-Li$$_{3}$$VO$$_{4}$$ (LVSO) thin film with a thickness of several hundred nanometers, demonstrating that the present method is sensitive to diffusion coefficients down on the order of 10$$^{-12}$$cm$$^{2}$$/s, which is more sensitive by about two orders of magnitude than that previously achieved.
