Radiations from Bromine (82>)


AN account has recently appeared of some work by J. R. Downing and A. Roberts1 on the radiations from radioactive bromine, 82Br, of period 34 hours. As their results differ in some important particulars from those I have obtained in a similar series of experiments it seems desirable to mention my results briefly. It was intended to carry out the investigations in some detail, but the work had to be abandoned in the spring of 1940 for more urgent duties, and it seems unlikely that I shall be able to resume it for some time.
