Reference numberRR/71/12
TitleReferee's report by James Chadwick, on a paper 'Neutron diffraction' by G E Bacon and J Thewlis
DescriptionSectional Committee: Physics

Not recommended for publication in the 'Proceedings of the Royal Society of London'. Suggests seeking the opinion of another referee. If he had not known the names of the authors, the communicator and the laboratory, he would not have recommended publication by the Royal Society, and that the paper should be published elsewhere. The paper contains nothing new, and all the points have been discussed previously by other authors. Refers to work of Ernest Omar Wollan and Clifford Glenwood Shull. The paper is a satisfactory review, and could be published in Nature if reference is made to the work of Ernest Omar Wollan and Clifford Glenwood Shull.
