Abstract

In the Philosophical Magazine for August, 1912, Professor R. W. Wood raises the interesting question concerning the existence of conducting atmospheres surrounding metallic surfaces. The necessity for this hypothesis arose from a number of experiments, in which electrical conduction took place between metallic surfaces, when they were separated between 20 and 30 wave lengths of sodium light.
