The amount of atomic mixing in amorphous SiO2 and Si is studied by measuring the redistribution of thin metal markers due to irradiation with 300-keV Xe+ ions. In SiO2, the mixing efficiency appears to be independent of the chemical nature of marker atoms and can be explained in terms of a linear cascade model. In Si, the mixing is found to correlate with thermally activated diffusivities of the marker species.
