Quelques Techniques actuelles en physique nucléaire

    Article metrics


    THE greater part of this volume is devoted to a A critical study of methods in mass-spectrography, and more particularly of the methods and results of the work of the last four or five years. This section, therefore, forms a valuable and needed supplement to the standard treatise of Aston. The remaining sections deal in considerable detail with the construction and uses of counters and counting circuits. Within these somewhat severely prescribed limits the treatment is remarkably complete, and it is typically French in its lucidity. The book, which is lavishly illustrated, is a notable addition to the literature of the experimental part of nuclear physics.
