Under preceding Contracts some studies on controlled oxidation of single-crystal surfaces had been carried out, the metals there considered being zinc, cadmium, tin, bismuth and germanium. Now, a first group of specimens of the said metals previously used in oxidation tests have been observed during their exposure to a hydrogen ion bombardment. In addition to a careful examination of the state of the surface after such a long ageing at room temperature, the aim of such experiments was substantially to ascertain whether the hydrogen ion bombardment could give some data about the reducing mechanism of any surface distribution of oxide nuclei.
