Abstract

Abstract The effect of alpha-particle bombardment on the creep of cadmium single crystals at room temperature has been measured in an attempt to repeat the observations of Andrade. No significant change in creep rate on initiation of the bombardment has been detected, although experiments were made on crystals differing in purity, surface condition, and orientation. It is considered that the increase in creep rate observed by Andrade was either due to geometrical softening or to the disruption of a surface film of somewhat critical thickness.
