The authors discuss experiments aimed at the direct investigation of self- and mutual diffusion in polymers. New electron microscope data are presented for mutual diffusion in the systems polyvinyl chloride — polymethyl methacrylate, polyvinyl chloride — polybutyl methacrylate, and polystyrene — SKS-85. It is shown that with increase in temperature and improvement in compatibility the depth of mutual diffusion increases. The data obtained make it possible to calculate the polymer-polymer diffusion coefficient.
