Porosity in GaSb induced by 69Ga ion irradiation has been investigated as a function of implant dose and temperature. Initially pores form in the implanted material which become elongated as they increase in size. With increasing implant dose, the structure continues to evolve into plates and finally a network of nanoscale rods. Swelling to 25 times the original implanted layer thickness has been observed. The temperature dependence of the minimum feature size has been established. The crystalline-to-amorphous and continuous-to-porous transformations proceed simultaneously. We suggest the latter results from the precipitation of interstitials at extended crystalline defects in preference to Frenkel pair recombination as potentially related to anomalous diffusion in GaSb.

    It is shown that, when a drop of a biological fluid dries out on a substrate, diffusion processes to a great extent suppress the transfer of the salt toward the periphery of the drop by capillary flows and still have a minor effect on the motion of colloid particles.

    It is shown that, for a tightly bound ion-solvation shell complex, the mean square displacement for solvation molecules is characterized by a long lasting transitory. This initial portion is related to the rotational relaxation of the complex and can reach up to several hundred picoseconds for a...
