An external electric field was applied during autoradiographic exposures in an attempt to influence the path length and trajectory of image forming beta particles. Various techniques were employed to maximize the electric field applied. No evidence was found for increases in efficiency of image formation within the receiving emulsion, up to a field strength of 7 x 10 volts/cm.
