Abstract : Conclusions: In the formation of aluminum oxide crystals from metallic aluminum and oxygen, the oxygen, in spite of refrigeration, penetrates relatively quickly through the aluminum oxide layer to the metal. Irradiation increases the rate of diffusion. Irradiation with electrons and X rays at particle energies of the order of 1 Mev not only promotes the occurrence of all chemical reactions, but also increases the rate of diffusion and the rate of crystal growth.
