Abstract

"In this investigation of current induced mass transport, the general phenomenological equations will be considered first so as to present a picture of the experimental situation. The theoretical computations are then divided into four sections: (1) the determination of the force on a defect due to electron scattering, (2) a discussion of how the force on the defect might be shared by the surrounding ions, (3) how an external force affects the diffusion frequency of an ion, and (4) what the rate of mass transport is under the influence of an electric field. So as to simplify the discussion and the computations, numerical values for copper will be used unless otherwise indicated, and vacancies will be assumed to be the only defects present"--Chapter II, page 8.
