The Rate of Flow of Hydrogen Through Quartz Glass has been measured over the range of 300°C. to 900°C. Some measurements were also made with Nitrogen and Argon. A perceptible diffusion starts with hydrogen at about 300°C. and with the nitrogen at 600°C., and then in each case increases rapidly with the temperature.
A brief discussion is given on the Possible Nature of the Flow of gases through fused silica.
