Article metrics


IN the very interesting summary of our present knowledge of the Zeeman effect, Mr. Preston has interpreted a number of results I obtained by the interferometer and the echelon spectroscope in such a way as to cast a general doubt over the performances of these instruments. Some of these interpretations are undoubtedly the result of misunderstandings due to my own want of clearness. I venture, therefore, to present a summary of the principal results, emphasising where necessary the points which require further explanation.
