"X-ray methods (Laue back reflection and transmission) and etch pit studies were used in order to follow structural changes in the deformed metallic lattice during room temperature recovery. The accumulative evidence indicates that the deformed lattice undergoes subboundary movements and regrouping of fragments within a few days after stressing. On the basis of a superficial investigation, it was found that fast neutron bombardment increases the rate of room temperature recovery. Through the use of a new etchant, a finer substructure was revealed within the Lacombe subgrain. Glide strain values were determined for the series investigated, and a new approach was attempted in the study of substructures using the Laue transmission method on a specially prepared single crystal specimen of foil thickness. A way of disclosing the internal detail within the etch pits was found through inking"--Abstract, page ii.
