TitleCopy letter from Joseph Larmor, to Dr James Thomson Bottomley, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date21 June 1907
DescriptionLarmor has been looking at Bottomley's paper on radiation with interest, comparing its results with those from experiments by others including Heinrich Rubens and Ernest Fox Nichols on platinum and carbon as radiators through a long range of temperatures, which have been published and are now appearing in textbooks. He asks if Bottomley thinks it possible to compare his work with these well known works.
