When metal is deposited cathodically upon a glass plate a film is found upon the side of the plate away from the cathode. In the study of this deposit both alternating and direct potentials were employed. An attempt to increase the deposit by various reflecting surfaces gave negative results. A possible explanation of the phenomenon is offered, based upon the assumption that the metallic particles receive a positive charge after leaving the cathode. An attempt to sputter non-conductors in the form of metallic oxides gave negative results.
