M-Emission Bands of Zinc, Copper and Nickel

WE have had the opportunity of seeing Dr. Farineau's letter before it was sent to press. We have recently observed the M-emission bands of nickel, copper and zinc metals, and it seems worth while to add a note, since the two sets of results, especially taken together, allow one to draw certain conclusions about the structure of the 3d- and 4s(conduction)-electron bands in these metals.
