Emission of Neutrons accompanying the Fission of Uranium Nuclei

  title={Emission of Neutrons accompanying the Fission of Uranium Nuclei},
  author={Joseph Rotblat},
THE experiments of Halban, Joliot, and Kowarski described in NATURE1 give an indirect proof of the neutron multiplication accompanying the fission of uranium nuclei after neutron capture. It can be deduced from these experiments that the additional neutrons are, on the average, faster than the photo-neutrons from radium C - beryllium used as active primary radiation. This conclusion is confirmed in a subsequent note2 by the same authors in which they find that the neutrons contributed by…

Liberation of Neutrons in the Nuclear Explosion of Uranium
RECENT experiments1,2 have revealed the existence of a new kind of nuclear reaction: neutron bombardment of uranium and thorium loads to an explosion of the nucleus, which splits up into particles of
