Abstract It has been claimed by R. Sietmann that the attribution of the discovery of the so-called ‘Auger’ effect to Pierre Auger was a false attribution and that Lise Meitner should have got the credit for that discovery. However Sietmann himself recognised that Meitner's description of this effect was ‘buried in’ two larger papers whose primary concern was nuclear physics. Sietmann only mentioned Auger's 1925 article and did not mention his 1923 article, an omission now found in many places…

Time-Stretched Spectroscopy by the Quantum Zeno Effect: The Case of Auger Decay.

This work exemplifies their approach with the Auger process, and finds that repeated measurements increase the core-hole lifetime, redistribute the kinetic energy of Auger electrons, and alter entanglement formation.

[111In-DTPA0-D-Phe1]-Octreotide: The Ligand—The Receptor—The Label

CST-17 is the bioactive cleavage product of a CST precursor peptide in humans, being a relatively recent addition and shares common structural and functional features with SST, but these peptides are the products of separate genes.
