THE arguments contained in Dr. Barkla's letter to NATURE ot May 7 do not directly affect the position which I have taken in respect to the nature of the γ and X-rays. I have shown that all the striking phenomena of the secondary kathode radiations are simply and completely explained on a neutral pair theory, but not on the older theory of ether pulses. Dr. Barkla refuses to consider this large body of evidence on the ground that it is well to deal with the simple and then proceed to the complex… 

The growth of interest for astronomical X ‐ ray 2 polarimetry 3

Astronomical X-ray polarimetry was first explored in the end of the 60's by pioneering rocket 9 instruments. The craze arising from the first discoveries on stellar and supernova remnant X-ray

The Growth of Interest in Astronomical X-Ray Polarimetry

Interest in astronomical X-ray polarimetry field has thus been renewed, and for the first time a quantitative assessment, all based on scientific literature, of the growth of this interest is presented.

Who Got Moseley's Prize?

Henry Gwyn Jeffreys Moseley (1887-1915) made prompt and very skilled use of the then new technique of X-ray scattering by crystals (Bragg scattering) to solve several problems about the periodic

1 1 Fundamental of Graphene

Graphene, a single-atom-thick sheet of hexagonally arrayed sp2-bonded carbon atoms, has got a significant attention due to its unique electronic [1], mechanical [2], and thermal [3] properties all

Science, assertion, and the common ground

I argue that the appropriateness of an assertion is sensitive to context—or, really, the “common ground”—in a way that hasn’t previously been emphasized by philosophers. This kind of
