Show synopsis This issue covers, in the form of abstracts, the work which has been reported between the previous retrospective and the end of 2002. The choice of abstracted papers is guided by criteria such as accessibility, data content and description of important new techniques, phenomena or anomalies. There is also a thorough coverage of qualitative features of diffusion and defect phenomena, computer modelling and theory. The volume also includes invited review and experimental papers which treat a wide range of topics in the field. The theoretical and experimental papers presented here cover the diffusion of Ga in Ti, the diffusion of Au in Ir, the diffusion of Ti in TiAl and the diffusion of point defects in Zr and FeAl. Among the other defects considered are grain boundaries in Zr and twins in superalloy 718. This volume also contains a very useful compilation of the positron lifetimes and vacancy formation energies for every element of the periodic table. These invited papers, abstracts and data compilation provide a convenient source of up-to-date information in the field of defects and diffusion processes in metals.
