The orientation dependence of 60Co self-diffusion has been investigated in stable decagonal single quasicrystals of Al72.2Ni11.8Co16.0by means of the radiotracer method. Over a wide range from 803 to 1210 K the temperature dependence of the Co diffusivities along the periodic (tenfold-axis) and the aperiodic (twofold-axis) directions can be described each by a single set of Arrhenius parameters. The temperature dependence of the diffusion coefficients yields the Arrhenius parameters Dper= 1.54 x 10-1m2s-1Qper= 277.4 kJ mol-1D0per=396x10-1m2s-1and Qper= 289.0kJmor1, respectively. The mobility of Co is slightly faster along the periodic direction. This anisotropic effect is discussed in the content of results of analogous diffusion investigation in icosahedral quasicrystals from our laboratory and with literature data on quasicrystals. It is concluded that Co diffusion in decagonal Al-Ni-Co quasicrystals in the periodic as well as in the aperiodic direction in the entire temperature range very probably occurs via a vacancy mechanism.
