Impurity diffusion of Al and Cu in γ-Fe has been studied by using non-radioactive tracer elements. Penetration profiles have been determined by the lathe sectioning and the instrumental analyses, namely, absorptiometry for Al and atomic absorption analysis for Cu. Penetration curves obtained have been good for the diffusion analysis. The absorptiometry and atomic absorption analysis are found to be useful to measure the penetration profile for the impurity diffusion in metals where suitable radioisotope as a tracer is unavailable or the half-life of radioisotope is very short.
