Neutron Structure : A New Model

  title={Neutron Structure : A New Model},
  author={Antonio Puccini},
In this paper we examine two situations apparently conflicting. On a side the Quantum Mechanics (QM) denies the presence of electrons within the atomic nucleus, so that it was shelved the doublet proton-electron as Neutron model. On the other side, in Nature exist various peculiar situations where many principles ofQM are not applicable. These contexts of extreme physical conditions make possible the process of electron capture (P+eN+e) operated by nuclear protons, whereby the electrons… 



Majorana Particle is a Neutral Self-Conjugated Electron

With the neutron decay, a proton and an electron (e-) are emitted. The energy gap, which should be offset by the emission of a 3rd particle, is randomly included between 0.511 and 0.7828 MeV. These

The Quantum Theory of the Electron. Part II

In a previous paper by the author* it is shown that the general theory of quantum mechanics together with relativity require the wave equation for an electron moving in an arbitrary electromagnetic

Neutral Electron Instead of Neutrino: a New Beta-Decay Model

With the disintegration of the neutron, or -decay (d), a proton, a  ray and a third particle, the neutrino (), are emitted. Their mass and high kinetic energy compensate for the amount of energy

On the Mass Defect of Helium

If one assumes that the potential energy between protons and neutrons has the shape of a simple potential hole, it is possible from the experimental value of the mass defect of the

Possible Existence of a Neutron

IT has been shown by Bothe and others that beryllium when bombarded by α-particles of polonium emits a radiation of great penetrating power, which has an absorption coefficient in lead of about 0.3

Il "protone neutro". Ovvero della laboriosa esclusione degli elettroni dal nucleo

The coming into light of the neutron is discussed. It is remarked that some experiments had already suggested that the penetrating radiation from beryllium had an electromagnetic component, before

Atomic Models and Regions of Intra-atomic Electrons

THAT, as concluded by Prof. Nicholson (NATURE, February 5, p. 630) the atoms of lithium, beryllium, and boron cannot consist of 3, 4, 5 electrons rotating round a nucleus of 3e, 4e, 5e, respectively,

Bakerian Lecture. Nuclear Constitution of Atoms

Introduction .—The conception of the nuclear constitution of atoms arose initially from attempts to account for the scattering of α-particles through large angles in traversing thin sheets of matter.

The Artificial Production of Nuclear γ -Radiation

The study of the γ-radiations emitted by atomic nuclei has greatly increased in interest and importance in recent years owing to the theories connecting these radiations with the intimate structure

The Neutron Hypothesis

DR. J. CHADWICK'S explanation1 of the mysterious beryllium radiation is very attractive to theoretical physicists. Is it not possible to admit that neutrons play also an important rôle in the
