A new method of simultaneous determining of the diffusion coefficient and the reflection coefficient of atoms from the reservoir walls is presented. The diffusion coefficient of cadmium atoms in the ground state in buffer noble gas atoms such as Ne, Ar, Kr, and Xe and reflection coefficient of Cd atoms from the quartz cell wall in the temperature range 350--550 K were determined. Experimental values of diffusion coefficient are compared with theoretical ones calculated from available potentials.
