Photoelectric Cells: their Properties, Use and Applications

Nature volume 135, pages 286287 (23 February 1935) | Download Citation



THE third edition of this book is, as its authors point out, practically a new book altogether, though certain portions of the previous editions are retained without much alteration. The differences arise not so much from the new material which has become available since the last edition was issued—though this is considerable—as from a change in the balance of the treatment, and in the class of reader for which the book is intended. It is now less of a handbook for those who actually want to use photo-cells, or a textbook on the theory of the photo-electric effect, than a book for those who might want to use them, and do not object to a somewhat abstract method of treatment.
