From Nuclear Transmutation to Nuclear Fission, 1932-1939 offers with a selected part within the early historical past of nuclear physics: the race between 4 laboratory groups to be the 1st to accomplish the transmutation of atomic nuclei with artificially speeded up nuclear projectiles (protons) in high-voltage discharge tubes. This quantity covers the historical past of the improvement of particle accelerators within the Nineteen Twenties, the expansion of the laboratories and their groups, the race itself, and its aftermath.
The ebook presents an summary of the background of nuclear physics, from Ernest Rutherford's nuclear atom of 1911 to nuclear fission at the eve of worldwide battle II. It specializes in the main points of the laboratory "race," which used to be received via the English staff in 1932. the amount additionally covers the response of the several laboratories to the invention of nuclear fission, their wartime roles, and a short epilogue at the later careers of the crucial personalities.
