Abstract : Consideration is given to experiments supporting the Beiby Layer Theoty i.e., an amorphous superficial structure can occur on the suface of a material as a result of a plastic flow developed by a polishing operation. This investigation is intended to illustrate the theory and stimulate interest in it because of its importance to the design, fabrication, and application of low-friction metallic items, glass lenses and prisms, semiconductors, and quartz frequency-control crystals.
