Dielectric Properties of Solid Hydrogen Bromide


WE have recently extended the measurements of Smyth and Hitchcock1 on solid hydrogen bromide both in frequency and temperature-range, and our results given in terms of the real (ɛ′) and imaginary (ɛ″) parts of the dielectric constant agree where the comparison is possible with those of the above authors.
