Nuclear reaction analysis, Rutherford backscattering and ion implantation techniques are applied to the study of the reaction between glass and aqueous solutions. The use of these techniques is described as are some of the results obtained. Solutions of NaCl are seen to etch some glasses several orders of magnitude faster than distilled water. Radiation damage created by high energy heavy ion bombardment is seen to have great effects on the penetration of hydrogen (water) into glass.
