The Radar Research Establishment in its present form came into being in September 1953, through the amalgamation of the Telecommunications Research Establishment and the Radar Research and Development Establishment, both being engaged primarily in electronics defence research for the Ministry of Supply. The latter establishment has a long and varied history starting with searchlights and leading up to the use of radar for accurate anti-aircraft fire control, whereas the former was mainly a war…

Intensity of the Radio Line of Galactic Deuterium

THE possibility of detecting deuterium in the galaxy by observation of a radio spectral line at a frequency of 327 Mc./s. has been discussed by Shklovsky1. He suggested that the line might be

Entrainment Properties of Plane Surface-Jets in Shallow Current

The entrainment properties of plane surface-jets in shallow moving water were studied. The jet entrainment characteristics were determined from laser doppler velocimetry measurements of longitudinal
