The diffusivity of a dilute solute in an HCP lattice is calculated with Ghate's 8-frequency model. Each of the eight frequencies (w_i) are specified by a transition energy barrier (E_i) and transition attempt frequency (v_i). The vacancy formation energy, vacancy-solute binding energy, and the HCP lattice constants are also required. The output temperature range can also be specified in terms of 1000/T.
