    This paper reports that the oxygen, hydrogen, carbon, nitrogen, and sulfur contents of steels and alloys can vary as a result of irradiation by electrons and gamma rays at comparatively low temperatures. As this takes place, the materials can be either saturated with these elements, or these elements can be removed from the irradiated materials, depending on the irradiation medium. Transformations are initiated as a result of radiation-stimulated oxygenation of copper-iron, iron-manganese, and iron-nickel alloys irradiated by gamma rays.
