TitleReferee's report by Harold Roper Robinson, on a paper 'Absorption of radium (B+C) gamma-rays' by J E Roberts
Date10 April 1944
DescriptionSectional Committee: Physics

No clear statement regarding publication in the 'Proceedings of the Royal Society of London'. Likes the way the work has been done and presented, the experimental work is good, and the interpretation satisfactory. The results are probably not complete, but not much more can be got from them. The results are of practical interest, rather than a significant advance. Refers to work of Louis Harold Gray, previously published in the Proceedings. Publication is commended by the paper being communicated by Edmund Clifton Stoner. His own feeling is slightly against publicationm but the paper is good and he won't object to publication.

Contains extra question - 'Is there any information contained in the paper which likely to be of value to the enemy?' Referee replies no.
