- Net fluxes of vacancies commonly occur during chemical interdiffusion in alloys, ionic conductivity and the annealing out of radiation damage. When atoms with different jump rates diffuse in a net flux of vacancies the phenomenon of the vacancy-wind effect will occur. This effect, first discovered by the late Dr John Manning, is a subtle phenomenon arising from a disturbed distribution of vacancies with respect to a given moving atom or species of atom. In this paper, the vacancy-wind effect is discussed and its visualization, performed for the first time by computer simulation, is demonstrated.
