Abstract Multi-component self-diffusion profiles have been observed in several II–VI compounds. Re-examination of previously published [1] data leads us to believe that an alternative to the original interpretation could account for the multi-component nature of the diffusion profiles. The alternative interpretation is based on the existence of short circuit diffusion paths, resulting in a fast diffusion component. The diffusion profiles show experimental evidence in agreement with mathematical… CONTINUE READING
