The diffusion is the result of Brownian movement and occurs with a finite velocity. We presented the nonlinear diffusion equation, with diffusion coefficient directly proportional to the impurities concentration. Analytical solutions, showing that the maximum displacements of diffusing particles are proportional to the square root of diffusion time like for Brownian movement, was obtained. For small concentrations of impurities, nonlinear diffusion equation transforms to linear.
