Considerable work has been done on various mineral substances and chemical compounds within recent years to ascertain, if possible, whether the substance possessed any degree of photo- or thermos-sensitivity; and, to determine the characteristics of these responses. Among the most prominent substances which have been tested are selenium, bismuth, antimony, hematite, stibnite, and molybdenite. It was the purpose of this investigation to summarize the phenomena that have occurred within samples of molybdenite under a variety of conditions involving heat, light, and e.m.f.
