    Recent papers have speculated that neutral sodium atoms are produced in significant quantities in glass by electron bombardment. XPS measurements on an electron-bombarded soda lime silicate glass revealed no evidence for neutral atoms at the surface or at depths up to the maximum penetration of the electron beam.
