Abstract

A correlation between the cohesive energy of elemental solids and the characteristic temperature Tc for the onset of radiation-enhanced diffusion during ion mixing is established. This correlation enables one to predict the onset of radiation-enhanced diffusion for systems which have not yet been investigated. A theoretical argument based on the current models of cascade mixing and radiation-enhanced diffusion is provided as a basis for understanding this observation.
