Abstract : The author demonstrates the possibility of raising the density of films of zinc, cadmium, and copper to that of the bulk material. The experiments were carried out on zinc and cadmium films sputtered on quartz substrates at reduced pressures. The experiments have shown that the increase in density of the films follows the same pattern as the increase of density of powders, and is described by an exponential function, for which the formula is given. Annealing in hydrogen leads to stabilization of the electric properties of the deformed films. (Author)
