The disintegration of nitrogen by slow neutrons

  • W. E. Burcham (a1) and M. Goldhaber (a2)
Extract

The disintegration of nitrogen by slow neutrons has been studied in photographic emulsions of different sensitivity, which enable an unambiguous distinction to be made between the emission of α-particles and protons. Evidence has been obtained that the disintegration takes place according to the reaction

with a cross-section of about 10−24 cm.2
