The permeation of deuterium through the palladium-silver Pd77Ag23 membrane was investigated. The diffusion coefficients of deuterium were determined at four temperatures between 303 and 328 K. The influence of self-stresses, created after introduction of deuterium into membrane with some initial deuterium contents, on the diffusion of deuterium was investigated at temperature 303.2 K. The solubility of deuterium in Pd77Ag23 membrane at four temperatures in the range 303-328 K was measured.
