  • THE view has recently been put forward1 that a neutral particle of about electronic mass, and spin ½h (where h = h/2π) exists, and that this ‘neutrino’ is emitted together with an electron in β-decay. This assumption allows the conservation laws for energy and angular momentum to hold in nuclear physics2, Both the emitted electron and neutrino could be described either (a) as having existed before in the nucleus or (b) as being created at the time of emission. In a recent paper3 Fermi has… CONTINUE READING
