TitleReferee's report by John Cunningham McLennan, on a paper 'The first spark spectrum of silver Ag II' by B U R Rao
DateJuly 1934
DescriptionSectional committee: Physics

Not recommended for publication. The accuracy of wave numbers is questionable and some lines are used more than once. There is no justification for changing the identification of Shenstone's 5d terms and the intensities of newly classified lines are in agreement with predicted empirical or theoretical rules.

[Published in Proceedings of the Royal Society A, 1925].
