Molecular Beams

Nature volume 142, page 736 (22 October 1938) | Download Citation



DUNOYER'S method for projecting beams of atoms or molecules through a vacuum has been applied in many branches of physics. Dr. Fraser describes particularly in this monograph its use in investigating atomic collisions, and magnetic and electric moments. It is evident that the potentialities of the method are extensive, whilst one gains the impression that its technique is not unduly difficult. The book is scarcely one for ordinary undergraduate reading, assuming as it does a considerable background of advanced physics, but as a survey of the subject for research workers it can be recommended wholeheartedly. The diagrams are clear, and there is an adequate index.
