EXPERIMENTS have been carried out to ascertain whether neutron bombardment can produce an induced radioactivity, giving rise to unstable products which disintegrate with emission of β-particles. Preliminary results have been communicated in a letter to La Eicerca Scientifica, 5, 282 ; 1934. 
Radioactivity induced by Bombardment with Neutrons of Different Energies
FOLLOWING the announcements of Fermi and his collaborators1 on the radioactivity induced in many substances by bombardment with neutrons, we have undertaken some similar experiments. Using sources
A rather intense source of fast neutrons for small scale activation.
The Discovery of Nuclear Fission - Good Solid Chemistry Got Things on the Right Track
An outline of the history of fission is given covering the period between spring 1934, when for the first time uranium was fissioned by irradiation with neutrons but the fission products were
Spontaneous Emission of Neutrons by Artificially Produced Radioactive Bodies
I. CURIE, F. Joliot and P. Preiswerk1 observed that after bombarding silicon or phosphorus by neutrons, the artificially produced radioactive nuclei emitted: (1) negative electrons as previously
Enrico Fermi’s Discovery of Neutron-Induced Artificial Radioactivity: Neutrons and Neutron Sources
Abstract.We reconstruct and analyze the path leading from James Chadwick’s discovery of the neutron in February 1932 through Frédéric Joliot and Irène Curie’s discovery of artificial radioactivity in
Unexpected Discoveries, Graded Structures, and the Difference Between Acceptance and Neglect
In June 1934 the Italian physicist Enrico Fermi published a paper in Nature entitled “Possible Production of Elements of Atomic Number higher than 92” (Fermi, 1934b). In this paper Fermi reported

New Forensic Insight into Carl Auer von Welsbach's 1910 Observation of Induced Radioactivity: Theoretical, Experimental and Historical Approaches
In 1910, Carl Auer von Welsbach noted that he had made an observation of a radioactive substance inducing radioactivity to an inactive substance. From today's point of view, this could have been the
DETERMINATION OF TRACE ELEMENTS IN DRUGS BY NEUTRON ACTIVATION ANALYSIS.
Results of determinations of trace elements in drugs by neutron activation analysis are presented for more than 150 samples including inorganics, salicylates, steroids, vitamins, antibiotics, and
