Measurements of diffusion and the release of inert gases from solids as a probe for observing and understanding chemical, physical or structural changes in solids is a technique which can often be used to establish useful relationships for predicting the behaviour of new systems . As an example, some data on the behaviour of rare gases in the semiconductors Si, Ge, GaAs and SiC are reported. Other examples presented include the oxidation of certain metals, the recrystallisation of cold-worked silver and the in-service behaviour of advanced nuclear fuels.
