The slow neutrons producing fission are obtained by slowing down the fast neutrons from the Be-D reaction of the Stanford cyclotron. In order to distinguish between fission neutrons and the remaining fast cyclotron neutrons both the cyclotron current and the pusle amplifier are modulated. A hollow neutron container, in which slow neutrons have a lifetime of about 2 milliseconds, avoids the use of large distances. This method results in much higher intensities than the usual modulation arrangement. The results show a continuous distribution of neutrons with a rather wide maximum at about 0.8 MV falling off to half of its maximum value at 2.0 MV. The total number of netrons is determined by comparison with the number of fission fragments. The result seems to indicate that only about 30% of the neutrons have energies below .8 MV. Various tests are described which were performed in order to rule out modification of the spectrum by inelastic scattering81ocn011471688book19340.92Bloch, FelixMolekulartheorie des magnetismus ...

Subjects discuss their family backgrounds, how they became interested in physics, their educations, people who influenced them, their careers including social influences on the conditions of research, and the state of atomic, nuclear, and quantum physics during the period in which they worked. Discussions of scientific matters relate to work that was done between approximately 1900 and 1930, with an emphasis on the discovery and interpretations of quantum mechanics in the 1920s.

Von Laura d'Oriano, die Sängerin werden will und als alliierte Spionin in Italien endet. Und von Emile Gilliéron, der mit Schliemann nach Troja reist und zum grössten Kunstfälscher aller Zeiten wird. Nur einmal können die drei einander begegnet sein: im November 1924 am Hauptbahnhof Zürich. Doch ihre Wege bleiben auf eigentümliche Weise miteinander verbunden. Capus treibt seinen Erzählstil des faktentreuen Träumens zu neuer Meisterschaft. Heiter und elegant, lakonisch und zart folgt der Erfolgsautor aus der Schweiz den exakt recherchierten Lebensläufen seiner Helden. Alex Capus, geboren 1961 in der Normandie, lebt heute in Olten. 1994 veröffentlichte er seinen ersten Erzählungsband Diese verfluchte Schwerkraft, dem seitdem vierzehn weitere Bücher mit Kurzgeschichten, Romanen und Reportagen folgten.
