Detection of the neutrons is accomplished by their ability to induce fission in heavy elements. Kelly and Wiegand studied the neutron fission of Bi, Pb, Ti, Hg, Au, and Pt at various neutron energies and the presently described counter is an application of this work132ocn681200036file19500.79Wiegand, ClydeDistributed coincidence circuit132ocn681601699file19500.79Chamberlain, OProton-proton scattering at 340 Mev112ocn795041007file19480.84Segrè, EmilioExperiments on the effect of atomic electrons on the decay constant of Be⁷72ocn279116001book19470.86Kelly, E.
