Abstract

IN consequence of the recent communication of R. C. French 1 on the structure of polished surfaces—investigated by high-speed electrons—and the fact that at the same time W. Boas and E. Schmid,2 using Laue reflection diagrams, come to rather different conclusions, it seems desirable to mention some of the results, obtained on different experimental lines and published in Holland about a year ago.3 These latter results suggest that polishing should be considered primarily as a very fine process of abrasion of the suitably prepared surface, accompanied by a levelling of surface lamellæ (or micellæ), the first step in this direction already being made when grinding the specimen (plastic deformation in the surface layers).
