The diffusivity in the Ni-Al system with and without an alternating magnetic field (AMF) was investigated by the diffusion couple technique. It was found that the diffusion coefficient was increased with increasing AMF intensity. The enhanced diffusivity in the AMF can be ascribed to the increase in the dislocation density in the diffusion couples, which was demonstrated by the broadening of X-ray diffraction peaks. The higher dislocation density was induced by the magnetoplastic effect (MPE). The theoretical calculation based on the MPE is in agreement with the experimental values.
