=================================================================================

Displacement energy (Ed) for bulk diffusion in conducting materials induced by electron irradiation is from 0.5 to 1.5 eV, while it for surface diffusion is < 1 eV. Energetic electron induced elastic scattering can also enhance diffusion of atoms at the surface [1] or vacancy migration in the bulk, which have relatively high cross sections and thus require energy of the order of 1eV or less.
