In this study, the effect of film layer deposited on a metal surface by vacuum evaporation method on the RISA phenomenon was investigated from the view points of surface wettability and quenching velocity. Test rods were made of SUS304 with the outer diameter of 24mm and the length of 150mm. Four kinds of materials, i.e. titanium, zircaloy-II, germanium and silicon, were deposited separately on the half-circumference surface of a SUS304 rod with thickness of 200 nm. It was concluded that the RISA effect was observed on the film-coated surfaces after gamma-ray irradiation, which is similar to that on an oxide layer of SUS304 surface. It was also found that the quenching velocity on film-coated surfaces was much faster than that on an un-coated surface.
