The electrode reactions of silver on a silver bromide single crystal were observed employing a current step method with a small amount of electricity passed. Special attention was paid to the preparation of the electrode contact. From the overvoltage change, the kinetic parameters, iO, Fv and aO were obtained in the temperature range 300-400°C. It is concluded that the reactions proceed with two steps, the one is a formation of interfacial silver ions, through a charge transfer process and the other the incorporation of the formed ion into the electrolyte crystal, which is a specific character for the solid electrolyte system. In this system, the iterfacial silver ion seems to be incorporated through a vacant site of lattice with an accompanying surface diffusion.
