Abstract

J. A. BECKER1,2 has described experiments from which he concluded that barium, deposited on one side of a flat tungsten ribbon, could, under given conditions, move to the opposite side. The thermionic emission measurements from each side of the ribbon indicated that barium deposited on one side migrated until each side was covered with half the original amount.
