TitleReferee's report by Marcus Laurence Elwin Oliphant, on a paper 'Resonance phenomena in the interaction of fact neutrons with beryllium and aluminium' by K W Allen , William Ernest Burcham and Denys Haigh Wilkinson
DescriptionSectional committee: Physics

Recommended for publication in Proceedings, if it is re-written. The paper is badly written and 'no clear statement is made about obtaining neutrons of varying origin'.The argument is difficult to follow without reference to Bethe's paper. Modification is required before it can be published.

[Published in Proceedings of the Royal Society A, 1947].
