Abstract

THE ionization by radioactive gamma and cosmic rays in different gases has been investigated by V. Masuch1 since 1932 and by me since 19362. For all measurements we used the same Kolhörster apparatus, the zero of which was separately determined at a depth of 406 m. in the Berlepsch salt mine of Stassfurt.
