By neutron spectroscopy, we studied vibrations of interstitials in two austenitic fcc steels ( and ) doped with 0.37 and 0.33 at% . The band modes, in which vibrates with its metal neighbours, cause a weak intensity in the energy range of the acoustic vibrations of the -free steels. The energies of the fundamental and the twofold local-mode excitations, in which vibrates against its metal neighbours, were and , respectively. The respective peaks in the spectra were broadened because the metal neighbours of , and thus its vibrational energies, vary from interstitial site to interstitial site. The above energy values support an occupation of octahedral interstitial sites.
