Abstract The diffusion rates of silver, chlorine, and cadmium ions in single crystals of silver chloride were investigated by a modification of the surface counting method. The diffusion coefficient of the silver ion from 200 to 400 deg C was represented by the equation D = 9.36 exp(--1.01 ev/kT) cm/sup 2//sec. Estimates of chloride ion activation energies gave a value of 1.57 ev between 350 and 400 deg C, and a value of 0.37 ev below 280 deg C. The silver and chloride ion diffusion data were compared with results of workers who used sectioning methods. The diffusion coefficient of the cadmium ion may be expressed by the equation D = 32.8 exp(--1.36 ev/kT) cm/sup 2//sec + 2.35 x 10/sup -5/ exp(--0.56/ kT) cm/sup 2//sec. (auth)
