    The water diffusion in four different, highly compacted clays [montmorillonite in the Na- and Ca-forms, illite in the Na- and Ca-forms, kaolinite, and pyrophyllite (bulk dry density ρb=1.85±0.05 g/cm3)] was studied at the atomic level by means of quasielastic neutron scattering. The...

    Anomalous diffusion processes are usually detected by analyzing the time-dependent mean square displacement of the diffusing particles. The latter evolves asymptotically asW(t) ~ 2Dαtα, where Dα is the fractional diffusion constant and 0 < α < 2. In this article we show that both...
