We have experimentally shown that the activation volume for Ni diffusion in NiTi B2 compound is close to zero. In order to interpret our experimental findings we estimated theoretically the pressure dependence of point defect concentrations in B2 systems. The effective formation volume of vacancies shows asymmetrical character about stoichiometry: on the Ni-rich side the Ni vacancy concentration can be described by an exp{-pΔV/RT}-type function, on the Al-rich side, it shows a more complex behaviour. At low pressures the Ni-vacancy concentration is independent of pressure, the effective formation volume is zero, above a critical pressure, where the vacancy replacement by Al-antisites is completed, the vacancy concentration will be pressure dependent. Experimental observation of the expected asymmetry of the effective formation volume could help to identify the defect structure and the operating diffusion mechanism(s).
