A study has been conducted on a Cu(Sn) solid solution to examine the role of the vacancy wind effect on interdiffusion. First, the interdiffusion and the intrinsic diffusion coefficients are calculated. The trend of the interdiffusion coefficients is explained with the help of the driving force. Following this, the tracer diffusion coefficients of the species are calculated with and without consideration of the vacancy wind effect. We found that the role of the vacancy wind is negligible on the minor element in a dilute solid solution, which is the faster diffusing species in this system and controls the interdiffusion process. However, consideration of this effect is important to understand the diffusion rate of the major element, which is the slower diffusing species in this system.
