Abstract

I. CURIE, Joliot and Preiswerk1 have shown that by bombarding silicon and phosphorus by neutrons there are produced radio-elements which spontaneously emit neutrons, in addition to electrons (Fermi effect), positrons and -rays. Thus an entirely new type of radioactivity has been discovered by them.
