Some time ago we reported in ‘Nature’ the observation of a nuclear photo-effect, the disintegration of the deutron by γ-rays. An effect of y-rays upon complex nuclei might be expected to occur from analogy with the phenomena of excitation and ionization of atoms by light, and such an effect has been looked for from time to time by various investigators. A necessary condition to make disintegration possible is that the energy of the γ-ray quantum must be greater than the binding energy of the… Expand
