In the preceding paper, p. 722, Oliphant, Kinsey and Rutherford have given an account of the examination of the disintegration of lithium by protons and by ions of the heavy isotope of hydrogen, using electrical counting methods, and have shown that the results of their experiments lend strong support to the views of the modes of disintegration which they there suggest. Certain of these conclusions may be more completely examined by photographing the tracks of the disintegration particles in an… Expand

THE presence of heavy ionization tracks has often been observed in Wilson chamber photographs; those due to the omission of α-particles from radioactive impurities can be easily eliminated. The restExpand

COCKCROFT and Walton1 have shown that when lithium is subjected to proton bombardment, a group of particles of range less than 2 cm. is emitted in addition to the homogeneous group of range 8.4 cm.;Expand

There appears to have been a continuous involvement of the Cockcrofts in the weaving industry of the Calder Valley, when hand looms were replaced by power looms, and it became necessary to organize larger units employing considerable capital and many operators. Expand
