Abstract : A solution is presented to the problem of the obliteration of discrete layers by diffusion. A technique is devised for measuring concentration at several points along a vertical line with minimum disturbance to the layer system. Conductivity measurements with a special microcell are employed. Results of the experiments are compared with theoretical curves, and close agreement validates the theory, which is applicable to a wide range of similar problems. (Author)
