Nuclear reaction studies

Mitchell, Ian Vaughan


The phenomenon of nuclear photodisintegration was demonstrated first by Chadwick and Goldhaber (Ch 35) who ruptured the nuclear bond between the proton and neutron by irradiating deuterium with the 2.62 MeV Y-rays from a ThCn source. Later, extensive photonuclear studies, chiefly using high energy bremsstrahlung Y-ray beams, established the existence and broad characteristics of the most striking feature of nuclear absorption of electromagnetic radiation, viz. the so-called giant...[Show more]
