Disintegration of Uranium by Neutrons: a New Type of Nuclear Reaction
ON bombarding uranium with neutrons, Fermi and collaborators1 found that at least four radioactive substances were produced, to two of which atomic numbers larger than 92 were ascribed. Further
Capture of Slow Neutrons
IT is known that some nuclei have very large capture cross-sections for slow neutrons. This fact may be explained from the point of view of wave mechanics, which also leads to the consequence that
Physical Evidence for the Division of Heavy Nuclei under Neutron Bombardment
FROM chemical evidence, Hahn and Strassmann1 conclude that radioactive barium nuclei (atomic number Z = 56) are produced when uranium (Z = 92) is bombarded by neutrons. It has been pointed out2 that
Products of the Fission of the Uranium Nucleus
O. Hahn and F. Strassmann1 have discovered a new type of nuclear reaction, the splitting into two smaller nuclei of the nuclei of uranium and thorium under neutron bombardment. Thus they demonstrated
