A universal scaling law for atomic diffusion in condensed matter

  title={A universal scaling law for atomic diffusion in condensed matter},
  author={Mikhail Dzugutov},
THERE is currently no unifying quantitative description of atomic diffusion in condensed matter. Analytic expressions have been obtained for the transport coefficients of an idealized dense fluid of hard spheres1,2, but their generalization to the rich variety of atomic structures in real condensed systems remains a challenge. Here I present evidence from molecular dynamics simulations that a universal relationship exists between the structure and the equilibrium rate of atomic diffusion in… CONTINUE READING
