If a beam of high energy particles impinges on a solid, radiation damage is produced only in a very thin layer at the end of the range of the particles. Computations determining the extent of this inhomogeneity of damage are outlined and carried out for the specific case of 20‐Mev deuterons impinging on a copper sample. A simple method is discussed for producing uniform damage in a thickness corresponding to the range of the particles.
