We found that the migration of an interstitial He near the core of the Σ3{1 1 2} GB is essentially three-dimensional (3D) within the investigated temperature range. The transition of diffusion mode from one-dimensional (1D) to 3D was observed in other GBs in the studied alloys. The results clearly demonstrate, that the accommodation, migration mechanism, and diffusivity of He is extremely sensitive to variations in atomic structure of a particular GB.",
