Laboratory experiments show that some solid particles which occur in the atmosphere can act as strong electron emitters when irradiated with visible light, while other substances, because of their chemical composition, can assume substantial negative electric charges. Implications resulting from these effects are discussed.DOI: 10.1111/j.2153-3490.1963.tb01378.x
