The dependence on the deviation from stoichiometry of the diffusion coefficients describing interdiffusion junction diffusion and self-diffusion radioactive tracer diffusion of the constitutent atoms of the lead chalcogenides is obtained for the general case in which diffusion may occur through interstitials, vacancies, and divacancies simultaneously. This model indicates the appropriate experimental conditions for obtaining diffusion data of the two types and provides an explicit framework for interpretation of results and identification of the diffusion mechanisms. It is shown that the parameters characterizing the interdiffusion process may be evaluated independently by an appropriate combination of self-diffusion measurements. Comparisons of this type are made with existing data. Author
