A study of photoproton reactions in heavy nuclei
Taylor, Raymond Booth
In 1934 Chadwick and Goldhaber (Ch35) disintegrated the
deuteron using the 2.6 MeV gamma rays from ThC". This was
followed by the disintegration of Be by Szilard and Chalmers
(3z34). The early work was limited to using gamma rays from
naturally occurring radioactive sources and it was not until high
energy electron accelerators were developed that it became
possible to investigate the systematics of nuclear photodisintegrations.
