The results of studies on the impact of an electron beam with the energy of 1-2 MeV on diffusion processes in materials with ionic bonds are presented in the paper. Used electron beam intensity is allowed to provide heating of the material to temperatures of 1600 K. Diffusion of Na, Mg, Al ions into single crystals KBr in the temperature range 573-883 K, Al ions in the NiO-AlO system at 1373-1573 K, was studied. Diffusion annealing carried out under thermal and radiation-thermal heating of the samples. Then diffusion coefficients were determined. It was found stimulating action of irradiation on diffusion processes of Mg, Al ions in Kbr and Al ions in the NiO-Al2O3 system, which consists in increasing the diffusion coefficients at radiation-thermal annealing. The observed effect is achieved by increasing the effective rate of diffusion jumps.
