A method is proposed for the preparation of Fe/S samples using molecular Sulfur to dope Iron samples at high temperatures. Using Fick`s semi-infinite diffusion model the time needed to obtain a certain bulk concentration at a specified temperature is calculated. Experimental results obtained this far confirms the possibility of such an experiment.
