NIST Diffusion Workshop Group

The 2017 Diffusion Workshop was held September 11-12, 2017 at NIST.   The presentations are now available online. 

The next workshop is planned for early 2019.   More details will be posted in September of 2017

For more information, please contact Carelyn Campbell.




  • To improve communication between experts in multicomponent diffusion measurement, analysis and simulation.
  • To establish the most efficient method for extracting diffusion data (diffusion coefficients, fluxes, marker location) from multicomponent diffusion couple experiments.
  • To provide a forum to solve common diffusion software execution problems.
  • To agree on a common diffusion mobility database assessment procedure.
  • To establish a general approach to data handling and diffusion modeling in ordered phases.
  • To develop standard problems and web site for inter-laboratory comparison of diffusion simulation methods and data extraction techniques.
