Abstract The variation with time of the conductivity of pure, nondegassed water when submitted to pulsed x-irradiation was studied. Results show a periodic change in conductivity. The amplitude of this change is inversely proportional to pulse frequency in the range from 10 to 3000 cps. Two effects seem to be superimposed; these are a reversible increase in conductivity during irradiation which returns to zero after the end of irradiation, and an irreversible rise in conductivity which starts practically instantaneously with irradiation and continues until the end of irradiation.
